After completely eliminating funding for sexual assault prevention and victim services in June, the New York City Council held a hearing on "Street Harassment of Women and Girls in New York City," where they pledged to take action on this issue. Tell them that the first course of action is to correct a mistake they made four months ago by providing financial resources for NYC advocacy and direct services organizations that work with individuals and communities to prevent gender-based violence.
