TTC launches new anti-harassment campaign

The ad campaign is accompanied by an app that enables riders to take discreet photos of perpetrators and share the picture with transit authorities.

The TTC has launched its new anti-harassment effort, #ThisIsWhere, highlighting cases of violence, unwanted attention, and discrimination on public transit.

The campaign, which rolled out earlier this month, features stories reported to the TTC that have occurred within the transit system. Posters on buses, streetcars, and subways read, for example, “#ThisIsWhere Ali was targeted because of her identity,” or “#ThisIsWhere Jamal was held up over a handful of change.” Posters are placed above windows, alongside other ads, as well as unique spots such as doorways and behind seats. The campaign will continue to roll out in new ad spots over the coming weeks.
