Please join Year of Uncertainty Community Partner Malikah and New York City Commission on Human Rights for a free in-person healing justice session and bystander intervention training at Queens Museum, centering the issue of street harassment. 



This will be an interactive community-building event which will create a safe space to discuss our shared experiences, learn tactical bystander intervention skills, find resources, and heal together. This event is open to all women and gender expansive people, and will intentionally center the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and people of color. We encourage folks 16+ to join!



In compliance with the New York City ‘Key to NY’ COVID-19 vaccination mandate, all visitors over the age of 12 are required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 as well as a valid I.D. in order to enter the Queens Museum. This measure, alongside mandatory mask wearing, helps us create a safe environment for staff and visitors by reducing the risk of COVID-19 exposure. Click here for more information.

They host intensive weekend long bootcamps, gender justice summits, recurring weekly sessions and one-off programs to scale access to their curriculum through organizers and trainers. Malikah’s movement is committed to a gender justice framework that amplifies the leadership of the most marginalized women in their communities, women who have been carrying all of us all along.
