No Disrespect: Calling Allies

We're gearing up to formally jumpstart the ally initiative of No Disrespect, the BMC anti-street harassment working group, and we need your help!

Culture change requires engaging the whole community and lifting every voice. We're seeking men & masculine-of-center people of color who:

  • Are familiar with No Disrespect's mission, vision, and perspective;
  • Understand how essential ally work is in the world of gendered & sexualized street harassment;
  • Are comfortable organizing other men & masculine of center people;
  • Can spend 1-3 hours per month on this initiative from now until the fall.

Know anyone down to get involved? Email zakia at with the subject line: ND Allies.
