On October 17, 2019, our Youth Outreach Officer, Jyoti Goyal represented Safecity at the “POCSO Awareness Run” event at Cannaught Place, Delhi. It was a campaign to advocate for “a society free from sexual violence”. Jyoti talked about Safecity’s concept of identifying hotspots which are unsafe and vulnerable to sexual violence. Participants were asked to share their stories of sexual harassment to help us in identifying the hotspots.
People shared that Bus route no 534 is unsafe and they have heard about many cases of harassment and theft in that bus, harassment in the metro is very common, many places of Sangam Vihar are unsafe, another girl shared harassment in a bus.
Participants appreciated the work of Safecity. We asked them to download the Safecity app and to join us on social media to stay connected.
