Our Mission

RightRides for Women’s Safety builds safer communities by ending gender-based harassment and sexual assault. We work towards this by community organizing and offering direct service, safety education and advocacy programs.


RRWS’ Board have concluded that for the longer sustainability of the organization and the RR program, we have decided to suspend the RightRides program and our Community Organizing work, resulting in the lay-offs of our Program Manager and Community Organizer, effective this month. While difficult, this decision allows time for us to assess and review the our operations model, its effectiveness and overall sustainability, as well as a greater focus on building a stronger funding base. We are committed to revising our programs for better service to women and the LGBT*Q community.

RRWS’ Board understands the immense value of our service and organizing work in support of women and LGBT*Q individuals. This is very early for us as there are other components of the organization to consider, but the Board will be in communication with the RRWS community as they learn more.

For now, if you have any questions, concerns or comments please email our board Chair Rebecca Andruszka at rebeccaand@gmail.com.

Thank you for your patience and thank you again for your hard work and dedication to our mission.

Radha Patel,
Executive Director
