A new year is upon us and if you are looking for ways to get involved in making the world a better, safer and more equitable place, we can help! Here are three things you can do this year, immediately, to help raise awareness about street harassment — and work to end it.
1. Apply to join our first Blog Correspondents cohort of 2017. This volunteer position entails writing a monthly article (500-800 words) about street harassment and/or activism in your community. This is an important way to show this is a problem all over the world… and that there are people all over the world dedicated to ending it. The position runs from January (now!) to April 2017, apply today.
2. Plan to take action during International Anti-Street Harassment Week. From April 2 to 8, 2017, hundreds of groups and tens of thousands of people all over the world will join together to raise awareness about street harassment. This is the 7th year and in the past, groups in up to 41 countries have participated by marching, wheatpasting, sidewalk chalking, holding workshops and rallies, writing op-eds and holding tweet chats. How will you take part?
3. Spread the word about the National Street Harassment Hotline. You never know who will need this toll-free 24/7 support — spread the word over social media or in person about the hotline. You can also donate to help cover the cost of running it in 2017.Share on Facebook
