We’re TRANSforming Harassment!

LUCK

The theme of the month is transformation and intervention! Join us at any of the following events to learn how you can transform harassment from a solitary, isolating experience into a community response and revolution!

  • Spread Your L.U.C.K.! (Living Under Communication & Kindness) — Join us on Wednesday, March 13 from 5-7 p.m. at Lime Lounge in the East Village for happy hour, where we’ll  be facilitating a safe-space discussion on street harassment and bystander intervention! This event is open to all ages (must be 21+ to drink) and there is no cover charge. R.S.V.P. to our Facebook event!
  • We’ve Got Your Back: Responding to Street Harassment and Violence (March 9, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Iowa State University)– Site Director Becca Lee will be leading an interactive presentation for LGBTA youth at the 10th Annual Iowa Pride Conference, hosted by Iowa Pride Network! In this session, LGBT youth and their allies will learn how to challenge the power dynamics of homophobic and transphobic harassment by flipping the lens off of yourself and holding harassers accountable. Together, we will share harassment stories in a safe space and learn how to effectively respond through assertive verbalization techniques, bystander intervention, and online reporting. There is still time to register for the conference–free of charge!
  • TRANSforming Harassment: Technology Responses Asserting New Forms of Safety (April 4, 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Prairie Meadows Conference Center) — Intern Tess Hopson is taking the reigns on an interactive presentation on transphobic harassment at the 8th Annual Iowa Governor’s Conference on LGBTQ Youth, hosted by Iowa Safe Schools! Register online for a small fee. 

Also– in the works for April is Meet Us on the Street: International Anti-Street Harassment Week! Got revolutionary ideas and time to spare? There is still time to jump on our planning committee! Email Becca at [email protected] to volunteer or for more information.

Hope to see you soon!

Holla & out,

Becca
