Mirth Films had an opportunity to sit with Ashley and discuss the history of the movement, what it means to her and what the goal of the initiative is for the future. These can be hard conversations to have, but awareness is the first step toward prevention.
On March 11, 2020 we will have our second GrooveSafe Allstars benefit event at Cervantes in Denver, CO.

“Keep your hands to yourself,” this is something we are taught as early as preschool, and sometimes in certain situations there is an apparent need to remind ourselves of this. Living in a digital age where boundaries and personal connections are commonly overlooked or forgotten, it has become incredibly important to be purposeful in our social interactions. It happens too much; unwanted touching, invasion of personal space and outright sexual assault. From this realization that more awareness was needed, GrooveSafe was born.
