Bristol Zero Tolerance is run by Bristol Women’s Voice to tackle gender-based violence, abuse, harassment and exploitation across the city. The project works in partnership with Bristol City Council and other key organisations to better help us achieve real change around gender-based violence issues.
Bristol Zero Tolerance acts as an overarching initiative linking different strategies and bodies together and raising awareness about the related work happening in Bristol. We also encourage Bristol-based organisations and city leaders to set a good example and sign up to our pledge to take positive action. The vision of the Zero Tolerance City initiative is for Bristol to become a city with a zero tolerance approach to all forms of gender-based violence and abuse.
We have set up The Bristol Street Harassment Project to highlight the impact of street harassment locally and support people to respond and be active bystanders. We also work with local decision makers to address street harassment as a city and encourage people to report gender/misogyny as a hate crime.
We work with businesses to raise awareness of gender-based violence issues for their staff and customers including providing training. In particular businesses in the night time economy are encouraged to sign up and get involved.
The Bristol Zero Tolerance website is currently under construction but should be available again soon.
