VoiceTool Productions Recognized by the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault

The California Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CALCASA) recognized a recent anti-street harassment event which VoiceTool Productions coordinated.  CALCASA was an ally in promoting the event, Meet Us on the Street SF.  Through this collaboration, we were able to raise awareness about, and provide tools against, gender-based harassment in San Francisco.  

Founded in 1980, CALCASA is the only statewide organization in California whose sole purpose is to promote public policy, advocacy, training and technical assistance on the issue of sexual assault.  

Many thanks to Alexis Marbach, Training and Technical Assistance Coordinator in the Prevention Department, and the rest of the CALCASA team.  Without publicity and collaboration, any effort to fight something as widespread and insidious as street harassment will be limited in effectiveness.  But together, we can advance the cause for respect on the streets.
