The Street Harassment Prevention Advisory Board (SHPAB) launched a citywide public survey to gather vital information about the prevalence and impacts of street harassment across the city and what kind of resources people are looking for to prevent and respond to it. The survey is confidential and anonymous, is open to all New Yorkers ages 18 and older, and is available in 10 languages. Deadline to complete the SHPAB survey is December 10, 2023.
Share your story and take the survey at www.nyc.gov/EndStreetHarassment. The Board also released a publication, “End Street Harassment: A NYC Resource Guide,” which includes steps people can take in the moment and following an incident of harassment, either as a target or bystander, and resources available to support someone who has been harassed. This resource guide is available in 12 languages on our website www.nyc.gov/EndStreetHarassment. Help protect the right of all New Yorkers to feel safe in public, and to move freely in our public spaces without fear of harassment. Together, we can help create safer, public spaces for everyone.
The SHPAB was established by Local Law 46 of 2022. The Mayor’s Office to End Domestic and Gender-Based Violence (ENDGBV) and the NYC Commission on Gender Equity (CGE) co-chair this advisory board. CGE sits within the Mayor’s Office of Equity and Racial Justice.
