Collective Action for Safe Spaces (formally called Holla Back DC!), a local grassroots organization working to empower the DC Metro area to build a community free from public sexual harassment and assault, is hosting a meet & greet event Thursday, October 18th, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Change.org DC offices. We are thrilled to co-host this event with the Rainbow Response Coalition, which works to prevent intimate partner violence within the LGBTQ community. This event would not be possible without the generous support of Change.org.
Let’s Make Change Happen: An Anti-Street Harassment & Sexual Assault Meet-and-Greet
Thursday, October 18th
6:30pm to 8:30pm
DC Change.org offices
419 7th Street NW, 2nd floor
Washington DC 20004
Complimentary snacks and beverages will be provided
Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS) has gone through a number of changes in the past six months, including doubling our all-volunteer staff, increasing our street harassment awareness activities, and contributing to WMATA’s new anti-harassment campaign. Because of this, we’d like to re-introduce ourselves to the grassroots activist community in DC (that’s where YOU come in!) through a meet-and-greet event. You will not only have the chance to learn more about what CASS and Rainbow Response do and hope to do in the future with community partners, but also to mingle with other related area organizations and enjoy complimentary food and beverages.
This event is open to all those interested in learning about CASS. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Tuesday, October 16th. We will confirm & let you know the exact address.
We look forward to connecting and seeing you October 18th at 6:30pm!
