It’s 2019 Anti-Street Harassment Week. Gender-based street harassment limits people’s access to public spaces and lowers their comfort level there. It can cause people to “choose” less convenient routes and alter their routines....and even quit jobs or move neighborhoods or simply stay home because they can’t face the thought of one more day of harassment.
Here’s how you can help:
1. If you know someone who has been harassed, there’s a 24/7 hotline to call at 1-855-897-5910. Let them know.
2. Show your support by sharing our post to ‘Stop Street Harassment’ on social media.
3. Open to doing a community-level program to help? Check out these tools and options for starting a program in your area. http://www.stopstreetharassment.org/toolkits/
