Today on Your Call: What Can We Do To Keep Our Streets Safe From Gender-Based Violence?

On today's Your Call, we’ll open to lines to air our concerns about sexual assault and violence. Every two minutes, someone is sexually assaulted in the US and more than half of assaults are not reported. A number of recent violent attacks in San Francisco are receiving widespread attention. What steps should be taken to end the violence? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. Do you have a story to share? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
