Saturday May 5, 2007 * 1pm - 5pm
Grand Street Settlement Beacon Center
at Marta Valle Secondary School

The Street Harassment Summit is a free public event for education, community interaction, and the sharing of personal stories. War Zone (directed by Maggie Hadleigh West) and a short film created by the Sisters in Strength interns will be screened and workshops will be offered on different issues such as strategies for ending street harassment, how women can respond to street harassment safely, how street harassment effects the GLBTQ population, and how men can be allies to victims of harassment. Women, MEN, girls and BOYS of all ages are welcome to attend
and learn about this overlooked issue.

All attendees will receive a gift bag including items from our sponsors.
