A Portland Maine Restaurant ~ A Safe Space Commitment
Local Sprouts Cooperative is Portland Maine restaurant grounded by a culture of anti-oppression and mutual care. We make every effort to be vigilant about oppressive behavior and oppressive work dynamics, taking particular care to resist the cultural environments that make kitchens and restaurants unsafe places for oppressed groups, like trans people, queer people, women, and more. Many workers point out that our workplace is exceptional in comparison to the more combative, violent, and openly oppressive kitchens they’ve worked in before.
Because we hold ourselves to this standard, we also expect our community to abide by the boundaries of our safer space policy, which is posted and available in the cafe´. Our safer space policy mimics the safer space policies of other cafe´s and venues around the world and clearly delineates what we consider to be unacceptable language and behavior. We’ve instituted these policies in a concerted stance to make our cafe and our workplace accessible to as many people as possible.
