Sign the Petition

Make Los Angeles a Safe City for Women and Girls!

To: The City Councils of the Greater Los Angeles Region

We, the undersigned, propose that the city councils of the greater Los Angeles region issue a proclamation that Los Angeles shall be a Safe City. Furthermore, we entreat the city councils of the greater Los Angeles region to engage UN Women in the process of joining the worldwide network of UN Women’s Safe Cities Global Initiative. This initiative by UN Women has already successfully reduced sexual harassment and gender-based violence in other urban spaces throughout the globe, including new Delhi, Cairo, Nairobi, Dublin, and Winnipeg. We believe that, by becoming the first American city to join the Safe Cities Global Initiative, Los Angeles can also effectively reduce sexual harassment and gender-based violence within our own community. Thank you for your support in making Los Angeles a safer city for women and girls!

  1. California NOW having previously called upon the Los Angeles City Council to enact a universal anti-bullying ordinance and having also called for women leaders in every neighborhood to be part of public safety committees to ensure the institutionalization of gender equity and the empowerment of women & girls enthusiastically signs UNWomen’s petition for safe cities.
