My mission is to to educate the community about the differences between alcohol and date rape drugs to prevent people from being date rape drugged. My vision is to create a safer drinking culture by making Drink Safe Initiative an educational program integrated in alcohol-serving establishments and alcohol-drinking communities.
“It’s not about promoting drinking alcohol or condemning it, it’s simply about building a safer community for all people.” -Brandi Kiana-Jo
I do this by educating people about the side effects of date rape drugs, inspiring people to protect themselves and look after each other. My goal is to integrate an interactive workshop in the culinary industry, college campuses and community centers to encourage a strong, social and safe community. My hope is that through community involvement, we can prevent date rape drugs from happening together.
Drug-Induced Rape Prevention and Punishment Act of 1996
Do not give up hope! If you’ve been drugged, there is a law that strives for justice that says this is not okay. In an unfortunate circumstance, at least there is a law states to impose “penalties of up to 20 years imprisonment” and a fine for this crime of violence (including rape). - Congress.gov
This is the first educational campaign on date rape drugs
Date Rape Drugs are under-reported and often overlooked because there is no educational program that teaches us to what they are or how to keep us safe until it’s too late. Being drugged can lead to sexual assault, theft, blackmail or other manipulative behavior and even death. Drink Safe Initiative is an educational program that benefits all people regardless of age, race, occupation or gender and inspires people to be conscious of their well-being especially when drinking alcoholic beverages.
As a holistic life coach, I care deeply about others and am devoted to empowering people to live their best life possible. Unfortunately, I was date rape drugged and it was one of the scariest situations I had lived through…I felt like I was dying. I was paralyzed, could not see (blind) for hours, I blacked out every several minutes and was sexually assaulted. Death is a side effect of date rape drugs but fortunately I'm alive to do something positive from this experience. I don't want anyone to go through what I went through. Help me educate and prevent this from happening to others as this could save a loved one’s life and even yours. Spread the word and request a workshop so we can inspire a safer drinking culture together.
