Excerpt Below:

Protestors gathered in New York City outside of Trump Tower to say “no more” to sexual harassment and assault.

As snow fell, survivors and advocates braved the weather to rally behind the #MeToo campaign as speakers took turns demanding an end to our society turning a blind eye to thousands of women, men, and children being harassed and assaulted every year. Sonia Ossorio, president of founding chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) was among the speakers scheduled for the rally. “This #MeToo movement will turn into a #NotMe moment, where the world we live in is different,” said Ossorio to the dozens of protestors.

Safe Horizon was there in support tweeting out highlights of the rally along with NOW.

In a video posted to the event page, police officers were filmed removing all of the notes attached to the wall of the subway station shortly after the rally concluded around 3:00 p.m. EST. One commentor on the page thanked everyone who went writing, “Thank you for breaking your silence and for your courage and resilience.”
