WHat is CAtcalls of NyC?
Catcalls of NYC is an initiative to raise awareness about street harassment using sidewalk chalk on the streets of NYC. We gather stories of harassment and write them at the locations in NYC where they originally happened. The colorful chalk quotes are then posted on Instagram where they promote dialogue and supportive comments. The goal of the project is to raise public awareness about street harassment and create a community of support for those who want to share their stories. We promote cultural change and hope that one day folks who face harassment on the streets will be able to walk without fear.
