Ed. Note: It has been noted that SoberRide doesn’t work for everyone. But they give a lot of rides so clearly it works for some.
From an email:
“This Friday, October 31st, the nonprofit group, Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS), will launch RightRides DC, an innovative new program to provide free and safe rides home to women and LGBTQ-identifying individuals late at night.
RightRides DC — which comes following reports of sexual assault accusations against Uber and the DC Taxicab Commission (DCTC) — seeks to help close what experts call the “safety gap.” The program’s need is evident in recent, national studies showing that street harassment and public sexual harassment and assault disproportionately affect and limit the mobility of women and LGBT people. The program is made possible by a sponsorship from Zipcar.”
You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
