CASS is, quite frankly, the little engine that could. These past few months have seen an explosion in the number of Safe Bars trained; we #HiredNona and are working with partners across the city to ensure our LGBTQ family has access to safe public spaces; we’ve continued to work with WMATA to ensure you feel safe on DC’s metro system; and our team tirelessly works with DC Council to make street harassment a priority. And we do it all with one full time staffer (our Executive Director, Jessica Raven…maybe you’ve heard of her??), our fellow Nona, and a staff of volunteers.
But we can’t talk about our achievements without mentioning the last group who make us so successful: YOU! Our amazing, dedicated supporters and donors, who continue to show up to our events, tag us on social media, and give when you can.
The Collective Action Circle is a group of individuals passionate about CASS’s mission to promote a culture free of public and sexual harassment who provide CASS with monthly financial support.
Jessica, Nona, and our volunteer staff need resources to continue holding public workshops, training bars to be safe places, meeting with WMATA and council members to advocate for better policies that will make our city more welcoming for all.
