Safe Happens Here is a new campaign, developed by CEASE Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault,
to train local businesses in bystander intervention and raising awareness about domestic and
sexual abuse in our county. This initiative aims to engage business owners and staff in doing
their part to partner with the community to prevent abuse in our county, our community, and our homes.
