This March 20 – 25, the first week of spring, RAPP peer leaders in schools across the City reached out to raise awareness about street harassment.  Working together with City Councilmember Ferreras and organizations like Hollaback, RAPP joined the international movement to stop street harassment.

RAPP leaders facilitated workshops and engaged students in discussion about the how women react when they are harassed – pretending to be on the phone, putting headphones on, walking quickly with head down, crossing the street, changing route completely, ignoring harassment, and more. Participants discussed victim blaming, how to best address the harassment when it is experienced, and how men can approach women respectfully.
