“We need services that addresses the shortcomings of the public transit system.” — DC Resident
Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS), a grassroots anti-sexual harassment group based in the nation’s capital, is working hard to bring RightRides to Washington, DC. Once fully funded, CASS’s RightRides DC program will provide free, safe, and late night rides to women and LGBTQ individuals. These are populations that CASS recognizes often lack extra funds for taxis and for whom walking home or taking public transportation alone late at night is particularly dangerous. RightRides DC will organize volunteer drivers and navigators to operate a fleet of cars donated by a car-sharing program. Driving teams will provide riders with a safe ride home (not to parties or bars).
The RightRides motto is “Getting home safely shouldn’t be a luxury.” This assertion couldn’t be more true. RightRidesDC would offer the kind of positive, proactive response to sexual violence DC needs.
