Additionally, Coachella announced it is taking steps to fight sexual assault and harassment with an initiative called Every One
. “Coachella will NOT tolerate any form of assault or harassment, be it sexual, physical or verbal,” the festival said in a statement. Coachella further promised to remove perpetrators from the festival grounds immediately, revoking their wristband with no refund, and involving law enforcement as needed. Coachella laid out a plan to “deploy Trained Safety Ambassadors throughout the festival grounds” and create Every One tents (without specifying a number) “staffed with trained counselors for anyone that needs extra support or a quiet moment away.” The fest also asks attendees to “do your part” by holding fellow attendees accountable, asking for consent, knowing where the nearest safe space or Every One tent is, and to report misconduct. This initiative follows a Teen Vogue
report from 2018 that highlighted a rampant culture of sexual harassment and abuse at the festival, which was unequipped to accept reports or protect victims.
