Dark neighborhoods, unlit pathways – we have all felt at some point that insecurity accompanies us during our nighttime journeys. Globally, statistics show that women and girls most often feel in danger when walking on the streets. Approximately 75% of women have experienced street harassment, and around 40% of them are afraid to walk alone in public spaces.

According to information presented at the conference “Protection of fundamental human rights and freedoms in ensuring public order and security,” street harassment is recognized as a current and particularly important issue for most countries, including the Republic of Moldova. To raise awareness among authorities and society on this issue, Laolaltă team invites you to the Night March “LAOLALTĂ Safer Together.”

With this march we want to draw attention to this problem, highlight unlit streets and/or non-functioning street lighting and to underline the importance of creating safe public spaces for all members of the community.

Event details:

  • Date and time: 29 November 2023, 18:00-19:30
  • Starting point: 151 Community Centre, 151 31 August 1989 Street
  • Route: From Community Centre 151 to City Hall

How can you get involved? We invite you to join the Night March and participate with your team. Together, wearing reflective vests and banners with awareness-raising messages (on 28 November at CC151 we will have a workshop on creating banners and personalising reflective vests, which we also look forward to seeing you at).

By working together, we can help change awareness and improve safety in our communities.
