Safety is Beautiful Presentation

Safety is Beautiful is a presentation that promotes domestic abuse awareness for salon professionals, who we have found through our research, are likely to interact with victims of abuse. We tailor the length of the presentation to the availability of the SIBLogo1_croppedsalon while still providing all the necessary information to know how to recognize, respond and refer. While we are aware that the need for domestic abuse awareness for the community is great, we struggle with capacity to reach out to all of the Southern Arizona salons therefore we look to identify individuals from the salon community that would be interested in representing and doing peer presentations for their peers in other salons in the community. The peer educator would receive in depth training by our staff. This program is in partnership with Tucson’s salon professionals and Pima County Attorney’s Office.
