Talking Back! On parle!

We did it!

Around 65 people came out last night to talk safety on transit. Best of all, we had an incredibly high participation rate! So many people bravely told their stories and we had an excellent dialogue about how to create change.

We are so inspired by your energy!

You can read a bit more about some of the stories submitted in today’s Metro.

The results of our forum will be tabulated into a report that will be made public sometime before our next meeting with OC Transpo on June 20th. Stay tuned!

Part of our evening involved a photo booth where we asked people to creatively resist harassment on transit. Check ‘em out!
