A cause we can all believe in

Who We Are

BASA is a collective of bar and restaurant professionals who recognize the issues of sexual assault, harassment, and discrimination within the wider culture and who believe it is our imperative to stand against these issues in our industry.

Why We’re Here

Alcohol is never an excuse. Alcohol is the #1 date rape drug, and though alcohol does not cause rape or other dangerous behavior, we have a responsibility to protect our patrons and fellow employees through raising awareness and developing strategies to intervene when we witness these behaviors.

How we’ll get there

We have partnered with Proper Groove- a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, brands, and other organizations to move the needle. Our goal is to raise awareness and implement bystander intervention training with the hope of reducing victimization and perpetration.

Our Mission

BASA’s mission is to engage and empower bar and restaurant professionals to create safer industry and patron spaces through bystander intervention training and awareness raising campaigns.
