41: The Number of Times CASS Has Been In The News In 2013!

Collective Action for Safe Spaces - ending street harassment in DC

We’d like to thank the members of the local and national media who covered our issue and help give our message a bigger reach! And a *big* shout out to the members of our community who shared their stories with the media. You played a crucial role in raising awareness of public sexual harassment and assault. You’re rock stars!

And in case you were wondering, the 41 news stories that CASS was covered in this year is TWICE the number of media hits we had in 2012. You know what that means?

What we’re doing is working, and our message is being heard!
