We want to work with you to create change in all of our communities.
See below different ways you can get involved and examples of work we have been doing.
We host public events, that allow people the opportunity to share their experiences and chalk them in the pavement alongside us. The events provide a space for people to talk, learn, and join us in raising awareness on how widespread of an issue street harassment is.

stop harassment in schools campaign
Our #stopharassmentinschools series was inspired by the numerous messages from middle and high school students who were facing gender-based harassment in schools. We were struck by the similarities between catcalling, which happens on the streets, and the harassing comments faced by teenagers at school.
Many of the young girls that messaged us had a similar story that after they were harassed and reported it to an authority figure they were dismissed, often told it wasn’t a big deal, or simply that “boys will be boys”.
We wanted to give these students a place to share their stories and ultimately, realize they were not alone in their experience. Moreover, we wanted to show people from just how young this behaviour— gender-based harassment— is learned and normalized.
