Take Back the Allston Bars

It’s official! By popular demand, we’re headed to Allston tomorrow night to take back the bar at Tavern in the Square.

We’ll begin arriving at 8pm to beat the rush, but you can join the group at any point in the evening. Remember: this is not a protest or a confrontational event, just a low-key gathering to create a safe space within a traditionally less-welcoming space. Read our FAQs for more background, join the event on Facebook, and spread the word—we hope you can join us!

We actively denounce the notion that street harassment is culturally accepted and that victims somehow "deserve" it. Through raising awareness and sharing experiences, we hope to put an end to catcalling, groping, stalking, public masturbation, assaults, racial slurs, and other forms of street harassment. Because we believe we have the power to create a world where we can feel hot, confident, and badass, while still feeling safe!
