Street Harassment Prevention Advisory Board Survey
Created by Local Law 46 of 2022, the New York City Street Harassment Prevention Advisory Board (“the Board”) works to study street harassment, develop resources regarding prevention and response, and promote public awareness of this issue. Your responses to the survey will inform the Board’s recommendations to the Mayor and the City Council on how to best prevent and address street harassment in New York City.

Street harassment is any unwanted or unwelcomed disrespectful, offensive, or threatening statements, gestures or other behavior directed at a person in public based on the person’s actual or perceived age, race, national origin, gender identity, gender expression, disability, sexual orientation, or any other trait, status or condition. Anyone can experience street harassment, regardless of their identity.
Participation in this survey is completely voluntary, meaning that you do not have to participate if you do not want to. Your answers will not affect your participation with any services you receive from the City. We ask for your honest feedback and experiences when answering this survey.
You must be 18 years of age or older to take this survey.
This survey asks questions about your experiences of harassment and assault. It’s normal if these are difficult for you to answer. We thank you for sharing your experiences with us if you feel able to do so. The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete.
Responses to this survey are anonymous and confidential, with data only to be shared in the aggregate. You may skip any questions that you do not feel comfortable answering and may choose to stop participation in the survey at any time.
You will have the option to provide your name and email address at the end of the survey if you wish to be contacted by the Board about participating in future focus groups about street harassment. However, any contact information you choose to provide cannot be connected to your responses on this survey and will solely be used to contact you regarding future focus groups on street harassment.
