A Resource for New Yorkers
NOW-NY is calling on women and men throughout the state who currently are – or have previously been – subjected to sexual harassment or assault while on the job to speak out about their personal experiences through our new hotline at 518-362-7857 or submit their story online at nownys.org.
The fall of 2017, NOW-NY launched a state-wide hotline for employees to report sexual harassment in response to the wave of complaints coming out through the #MeToo movement and the lack of recourse available to survivors. There must be accountability for our elected leaders and those in positions of power so that sexual abuse, harassment, and assault are handled immediately and appropriately – not with secret agreements in forced arbitrations and with payoffs made with taxpayer funds.
For those of you in the New York City metropolitan area, we will soon be re-instigating our monthly Workplace Harassment Legal Clinics to provide free legal counseling to those in need. To get signed up for the next session, email us firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
