Organization Fighting Against Street Harassment Through Sidewalk Chalk Favorite 



Mar 28 2016


New York City

Catcalls of NYC is an organization that uses Instagram and everyday intervention as a platform of raising awareness about street sexual harassment. The group receives direct messages from people who have been catcalled on the street. The group goes to the location of the harassment and writes the catcall on the sidewalk in chalk. The Instagram account CatcallsofNYC then posts on their account a picture of the chalk writing. The Instagram account provides people who have experienced street harassment a place to share their experience and find a community of support. The purpose of writing the catcalls in public spaces is to raise awareness and hopefully make streets safer.
