RightRides DC Is Coming Back for New Years!

Why are we smiling so big? It’s because RightRides DC, our program to provide free, safe rides home late at night for women and LGBTQ individuals, is coming back on New Year’s Eve! And it’ll be bigger and better than ever, with two new cars added to the fleet and an extra half-hour of service.

Check out this preview of our bigger, better service on DCist!

We want you to know that your generous support this past month is driving (no, really!) RightRides DC on New Years’ Eve — and giving it a boost. Thanks to you, we’ll be able to provide this important service on New Years’ to more people, in more parts of the city.

We couldn’t be more grateful.

P.S. Help us spread the word about RightRides DC! Send a tweet telling your friends about the New Years’ service date.

Your Support Means Everything – Thank You!

Dear CASS Community,

Thanks to you, we raised $17,270 in 24 hours to end public sexual harassment and assault in DC.

It’s moments like this, when hundreds of community members come together to take action, that prove our power to incite change. With every dollar you give, you are making our city safer, and showing people most at risk for public sexual harassment and assault that they are supported.

Our goal for #GivingTuesday yesterday was to raise $12,168, a dollar for every person in DC who experiences harassment or assault on a daily basis. Because of you, we raised over 130% of that goal.

You are amazing.

With so much love and gratitude,

Chai Shenoy
Executive Director
