EAST 29TH x SAFEBAE
East 29th is excited to announce we're partnering up with SafeBAE. To show our appreciation for the BAE Breakers and Youth Ambassadors we're providing the Vital Serum through their SafeBAE app as they earn rewards through their point system.
SafeBAE is a survivor-founded, student-led national organization whose mission is to end sexual assault among middle and high school students. As the only national peer-to-peer organization of their kind, they help promote culture change by giving teens the tools to become activists and shift school culture through raising awareness about dating violence, sexual harassment and assault, affirmative consent, safe bystander intervention, survivor care, and their rights under Title IX.
They believe in the power of young students to prevent sexual assault in middle and high school. Awareness + Action = Culture Change.
Featuring an Anonymous Reporting Button.

SafeBAE’s mission is to provide comprehensive Consent Education to students, educators, and caregivers. We know that without proper information and discussion about consent, starting at an early age, we are failing this generation.
WHAT IS CONSENT?
Raise awareness about sexual assault in middle and high schools.
Provide information on student rights to be free from sexual violence under Title IX.
Provide education around consent, bystander intervention, and safe relationships in all secondary schools.
Engage all students to be a part of the solution using art, activism and social media.
Provide students/survivors who have experienced violence with information on their rights, options for justice, and resources for healing.
Outreach to school boards across the country to ensure their understanding of obligations under Title IX and provide them best practices for student codes of conduct and department responses.
Promote consent education legislation in every state.
If you are a student, parent, or district stakeholder of any kind, we encourage you to join us in helping schools across the country update their policies and protect their communities. Our step-by-step guide is entirely free to anyone. We ask only that you register to receive it and to please stay in contact with us about your achievements!
TEACHING BYSTANDER INTERVENTION
BAEcode is meant to disrupt the familiar “Bro Code” and the idea that we’re only watching out for our own group of people. BAEcode envisions a world where we hold each other accountable for kindness, standing up, and stepping in when we see something wrong.
SafeBae launched this new campaign during Sexual Assault Awareness Month in 2018 as a way to enhance the SafeBAE Squads active bystander intervention tools, which teaches and empowers teens to prevent sexual harassment and assault in their own peer groups.
In this PSA about sending nudes – otherwise known as ‘sexting’- we explore the risks, pressures, and realities of what can happen when teens share intimate photographs. The messages most kids get from adults is “just don’t do it,” but sending nudes has still continued to grow into a cultural norm across all ages. Their script and concept were developed with input from their BAE Breakers (student ambassadors) around the country, so we could approach the issue in a non-judgmental way.
SafeBae is able to offer a new resource to their community with a monthly gathering for survivors. Starting January 2, 2021, SafeBae will be hosting a virtual gathering of survivors on the first Saturday of each month.

SafeBAE Ambassadors are known as BAE Breakers
SafeBae is working to build a nationwide (and beyond!) Teacher Coalition of educators who support their students in becoming BAE Breakers and use their materials for teaching. They rely on adult allies of all kinds to support their work, but educators are among our most important allies.
