RightRides for Women's Safety is an inspirational organization, led by an inspirational woman. Their core project, RightRides, PREVENTS harassment and assault by giving women and LGBT folks safe rides home. They are also part of New Yorkers for Safe Transit, which CHANGES POLICIES to make trains and buses safer. They are partners and cofounders of Hollaback!, a movement to end street harassment that allows women and LGBT folks to RESPOND to street harassment in a bad-ass way. This three pronged approach is visionary, and I can't wait to see what they do next.
