In three weeks, from April 2-8, Stop Street Harassment is organizing the seventh annual International Anti-Street Harassment Week. Already groups and organizations in more than 25 countries have pledged to participate. The Week is a chance for us to join together in solidarity and amplify each other’s voices so that the world listens, as well as to raise awareness in our local communities.
- Tell Us What You’re Doing!
If you are participating, we want to know what you’re doing! Please either complete this form, or e-mail me, Holly, with info at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your help.
- Ideas for Action
Do you still need ideas for what you can do? Here are several. Also gain ideas from the 2016 wrap-up report and the 2015 wrap-up report.We especially hope to see offline discussions involving diverse community members of all genders and backgrounds. It will take EVERYONE to truly create safer communities.
We have a selection of shareable images and downloadable fliers on our website and will be adding even more in the next two weeks. If you have ideas or want to offer translation help, please email email@example.com.
- Write a Blog Post
If you’d like to write a blog post for Stop Street Harassment (or have an entry cross-posted from your blog) that would be great! It can be for the week itself, or you can advertise what you’ll be doing for the week and why. Just reach out to Holly, HollyKearl@yahoo.com, with a short pitch about what the blog would cover and the preferred date or time range you’d like it published.
- Tweet Chats
April 4 will be our global tweetathon. Tweet about street harassment using #Endsh throughout the day (from whatever time zone you’re in, using whatever language/s you want). We are in the midst of scheduling the daily tweet chats — If you are planning to host one but haven’t been in touch yet, please reach out and I will add it to the official list.
Feel free to reach out anytime with questions, suggestions, or information!
