All children and youth deserve opportunities to walk, bike, and be physically active on the way to school. However, there are barriers to safe walking and biking that go beyond infrastructure and traffic. Many youth, particularly the LGTBQ community, youth of color, and girls, face threats, microagressions, and other types of street harassment on the way to and from school.
In conjunction with Anti-Street Harassment Week, the Safe Routes Partnership invites partners and advocates to join a conversation on Twitter to discuss the risks and challenges that youth face on the way to school and how advocates and community members can support all youth to ensure safe passage on the way to school.
Join us and share your experiences and successes in helping youth overcome street harassment and making neighborhoods and communities safer.
