I know it often feels like there is nothing we can do as individuals to stop all of the violence, but there is always something we can do.
If nothing else, please speak up and denounce sexual assaults and incivilities that may occur in public area, transit, parks, etc. I encourages any person, victim or witness to report these acts by dialing 911 or by going to his neighbourhood station.
Filing a complaint with the police is the first step towards arresting suspects.
To be silent is to condone. The most vulnerable people in our society are being hunted and attacked with horrifying regularity.
At home, do not let hateful dehumanizing rhetoric slide even on the smallest scale. Send anyone and everyone a clear message that misogyny, bigotry, and racism will not be tolerated by the good people of this world.
If you have the means, donate to those who save and protect the lives of the most vulnerable.
We are all we’ve got.
