VoiceTool is coordinating a series of events to address street harassment.

Street harassment(catcalls, sexually explicit comments, sexist remarks, groping, leering, stalking, public masturbation, and assault, and the like) affects everyone.  VoiceTool is collaborating with the San Francisco/Bay Area community to stop it.

This month, we're collaborating with a movement called  Meet Us on the Street (MUOTS), in conjunction with Stop Street Harassment and related organizations, to put a stop to street harassment.  We will hand out information on what to do in a harassment situation, spell out respect vs. harassment, and engage passers by interested in ongoing involvement with the issue.  

The MUOTS event is scheduled for Wednesday March 21 from 6-7 p.m. at the 16th St. BART station in San Francisco.  

Here's the event's Facebook page:
