International Anti-Street Harassment week begins today, and goes through April 5th 2014.

A program by Stop Street Harassment, Meet Us On the Street was designed to raise awareness about the issue of gender based street harassment.

Visit the Events Page to learn more about social actions that are taking place on this issue from different parts of the globe.

There are several co-sponsors who participate in this initiative internationally, and Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian is one of them. I’ll be posting a note each day this week concerning the issue of gender based street harassment.

I'm a Social Worker, Educator, and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
