Who are we?
The Order an Angelot initiative is a partnership between ASEQ | Studentcare, “Sans oui, c’est non!” and “Ni viande ni objet” to combat sexual violence in student bars. This initiative aims to prevent dangerous situations and to protect those in need.
We have chosen the name Angelot, “little angel,” a term here used as resonance to the protection it brings to the person in need, when it order this fictitious cocktail. It can be understood in both English and French. Order an Angelot, inspired by campaigns already in place around the world, like Angel Shots in the United States and Ask for Angela in the United Kingdom, is tailored to the needs of students in Quebec and even provide a complete training to accredited bars.
How does it work?
Participating bars will hang up a clearly visible informative poster in the bathrooms as well as a sticker on their door. Thus, if you feel unsafe or are worried about the safety of someone else, you can go to the bar and notify a staff member of your situation by ordering an Angelot. No questions about the situation will be asked and no justification will be required.
The staff members are then responsible for applying the protocol. The protocol includes information on support resources for those seeking help.
To ensure adequate protection of those who feel unsafe; To prevent sexual violence in bars frequented by the student community.
These objectives will be met through the following approaches: The protective approach: the application of an easy-to-follow protocol; The preventive approach: the receipt of a prevention kit to educate staff and raise awareness of sexual violence.
