Coachella Is Pushing New Sexual Harassment Prevention Efforts

Launching the Every One initiative.

Coachella has just announced its anticipated lineup for this year’s festival, and following the reveal, the organizers have also addressed other aspects of the festival that will see a bigger focus this year. This time around, the festival is rolling out improved safety measures designed to prevent sexual assault and harassment on the grounds.

This year, the festival will feature a new initiative called Every One, which has been created to keep festival goers safe by having trained safety ambassadors, counselors and more on the festival grounds. There will also be a number of “safe spaces” marked out across the area. ”We are pushing ourselves and our guests to do better and to be better. We are taking deliberate steps to develop a festival culture that is safe and inclusive for everyone. Persons of any gender identity or expression, sex, sexual orientation, race, religion, age or ability are welcome at Coachella,” states the Every One website. The site also added that, “along with the Code of Conduct, Coachella will NOT tolerate any form of assault or harassment, be it sexual, physical or verbal. Anyone found to be in violation of this policy is subject to immediate removal from the festival site and law enforcement may be notified. The offender’s Festival Wristband may be revoked and no refund will be issued.”

The important initiative will help to keep festival goers safe during the weekend, and is a much needed effort from the festival organizers. If you’ve missed it, take a look at the 2019 Coachella lineup here, and stay safe during festival season.
