Respect the District – Harassment Free DC

A reader reports:

“This sign/art popped up in Columbia Heights yesterday at 14th & Irving across from metro in front of CVS. Did a google search and IG search and didn’t come up with anything. Any idea who is sponsoring?”

I was able to find them on Twitter:

“The Respect Flag at 14th & Irving in DC. Designed by emzki.com Connect your stories & selfies taken through the stars. #harassmentfreedc Respect!”

Sponsored by Vision Zero DC (part of DDOT):

  • Peter Orvetti

    Good message, but I thought Vision Zero was about traffic accidents/fatalities?

    • textdoc

      Yeah, I was puzzled by this too.

      IIUC, it encompasses impediments to safely/comfortable navigating non-auto transport of all kinds. That includes harassment as a pedestrian/transit-rider.

      • Peter Orvetti

        Ah, that makes sense. Thanks!
