Morgan Healey’s Service Reflection

This September, I participated in a chalk walk against catcalling. We wrote messages in chalk along the sidewalk near school, and made our way towards Union Square. We wrote things like¬†“My name is not Hey Baby” and “I deserve to feel safe on the streets.” As we filled up the sidewalk with colorful messages, people would stop and ask us questions, or take pictures. Occasionally, someone would tell us their experience with catcalling and thank us for what we were doing. It was so inspiring to be a part of the chalk walk, because I truly felt like I was making a difference. Even though one message may seem like it makes no difference, something small can inspire many¬†conversation that leads to change. I thought that the chalk walk was super successful, and I would love to organize a couple next year or maybe take part in one outside of school.
