2017 was a big year, and 2018 looks like it will be even bigger!
As we look toward 2018, we already have a few projects on the horizon:
2. National Survey: Thanks to our generous donors, PinPoint Foundation and Raliance, we are moving forward with the survey firm GfK to conduct a nationally representative survey on sexual abuse across all the spaces it occurs. The survey draft is under review by our advisory committee right now and we hope to see the 2000-person survey conducted in mid-January. Afterward, pro bono data analyst will be conducted by Dr. Anita Raj, Director of UC San Diego’s Center on Gender Equity and Health. We hope to release the timely report in March 2018!
3. International Anti-Street Harassment Week: Our 8th annual week of awareness will take place from April 8 to 14, 2018! If your group or organization would like to co-sponsor, please be in touch with StopStreetHarassment@yahoo.com. Stay tuned for more information, including a toolkit for community action that is tied to the national survey.
4. National Hotline: We will continue to partner with RAINN to offer the only national hotline dedicated to ending street harassment. It costs about $400 per month to run both the phone and online hotline. Your tax-deductible donation can help keep the hotline running!
May 2018 will mark our 10-year anniversary, so that will also make it a big year for us.
Thank you for being part of our community, and we look forward to working with you more in 2018!Share on Facebook
