Heads up, 7-UP, ladies. Local organization Safe Slope is arranging Safe Walks this weekend. So if you're oot and aboot this weekend and plan on walking home solo late at night, do yourself a favor and consider giving these volunteers a ring. Deets from the group below:
We are piloting our volunteer-run Safe Walk program this weekend!
Tonight, Friday night, and Saturday night from 8:00pm to 3:00am.
Safe Slope’s Safe Walk initiative is a volunteer-based program providing free walks home to female- and LGBTQ-identified community members. To arrange a Safe Walk, neighbors can call us at (347) 709-8852, and a pair of Safe Slope volunteers (which will include at least one woman) will meet them and walk them home safely. Safe Walk volunteers can provide “pick-ups” at local establishments and subway stops and will provide “drop-offs” anywhere in our catchment area (between 9th and 30th Streets and between 2nd and 8th Avenues in Brooklyn).
