Taking Back Public Transit: Confronting Violence on Board


After tracking harassment, masturbation, and assault on the New York City transit system for over three years, we decided to take action. We recently co-founded New Yorkers for Safe Transit – the only coalition dedicated to eliminating sexual assault and hate violence—particularly gender- or discrimination-based— within NYC’s public transit system.

In response to an ongoing rash of sexual assaults and harassment occurring in the subways, New Yorkers for Safe Transit (NYFST) is hosting a forum for concerned community members and anti-violence activists to analyze the rampancy of gender-based violence in the New York City public transit system and discuss strategies to address this problem. Please join us:
DATE: Monday, June 8th, 2009
TIME: 7 PM – 9PM
LOCATION: Brecht Forum, 451 West St. (btwn. Bank & Bethune)

Emily May from HollabackNYC, Doyin Ola from RightRides, Veronica Tirado from Girls for Gender Equity, and Cate Contino from the Straphangers Campaign, are expected to speak on issues including budget cuts, organizing straphangers, addressing violence, and making change within our public transit system.

During the forum, participants will share with one another practical ways to avoid, deescalate and prevent violence and harassment on public transit.

Hope to see you there!

Men Who Harass Me: One Women’s Partial Collection


As part of a new initiative, we are going to be taking an in depth look at one woman’s experiences being street harassed in New York City. We will reveal a new photo each day for the next month. The photos were submitted by Sally N., a New York City resident, and will be posted in chronological order. We believe these pictures tell the story of what it’s like to be a women in the big apple.

This is the first in the series.

The Subway Ads are Great, but they only go so far

This horrific story reminds us that without a trained and sensitive staff at the MTA, those beautiful subway ads that we worked so hard to get up are useless. The Subway Safety Coalition, of which HollabackNYC is a part of, will be drafting letters to the heads of the MTA, the transporation committees in the New York State Senate and Assembly, as well as to the Public Safety Committee in the City Council.

To do your part, send a letter to the editor of the Daily News at voicers@edit.nydailynews.com. Remember to include your full name, address and phone number.

HollabackNYC’s Crush #6


Scott Stringer. Not only did he just testify about this, he was also the brain behind the first ever survey of subway safety.
