New Yorkers for Safe Transit (NYFST)

is a coalition of community-based organizations working to eliminate gender-based violence, including street harassment and assault, which occurs in New York City’s mass transit system.


Join the Transit Justice Collective

Are you a survivor of sexual assault or sexual harassment while traveling on NYC’s mass transit system? Have you witnessed indecent exposure, name-calling, or groping?  Have you been the victim of a hate crime? NYFST is looking for leaders like you to be a part of our Transit Justice Collective Advisory Board. As a member of the Transit Justice Collective, you will use your personal experiences to help educate other riders about staying safe while using mass transit.

We are collecting stories that illuminate the ways gender-based violence happens in NYC mass transit. Whether you were groped on the subway in Manhattan, called a homophobic slur while riding the bus in Brooklyn, or been made to witness public masturbation in Queens, we want to hear your story. This information will help make the case about why more comprehensive safety measures are needed in mass transit.
