2023 Sweepstakes Winner: SAFER Station

We are excited to finally announce the winner of our Safer Spaces Sweepstakes for 2023: SAFER Station of the Office of Justice Policy and Programs (OJPP) in Columbus, Ohio.

THANK YOU to everyone who nominated an organization this year - we had 39 nominations in all! Every organization nominated was entered into a randomizer to draw a winner - we chose a duck-race themed randomizer this year.

What if every space could be a safer space?

Every bathroom should be a safe bathroom, and we want to help get there, one bathroom at a time.

Brave Sensors are installed in bathrooms to help support timely intervention during overdose events or other medical emergencies. They work by alerting designated responders to come and check on the bathroom when certain conditions are present - the bathroom patron has been inside for a long time or motion in the bathroom has stopped.

Brave’s Safer Spaces Sweepstakes is open to all eligible sites located in the United States or Canada. Nominations officially opened on August 1st, 2023. All nominations must be submitted via the nomination form by 11:59 PM Pacific Time on September 30th, 2023 to be considered. One lucky winner will be selected randomly from the pool of eligible entries.

Brave reserves the right to cancel the sweepstakes or make changes as necessary. Sweepstakes prize is one (1) Sensor, which includes ($2,000 value), shipping, and 3 years of support ($1,500 value).

For a nomination to be accepted, the bathroom must: 

♥ Be located in the US or Canada
♥ Be open for public use
♥ Meet basic requirements for having a Brave Sensor
♥ Be located in an area where there is a risk of overdose happening
♥ Be single occupancy (one person uses at a time) 
♥ Have a source of electricity
