Welcome to the CSSS web site!
Why the Campaign was launched:
In the very early morning of Monday, January 29, 2001, an Asian American woman was raped and beaten at the Canal Street Station of the #6/N/R trains. In order to transfer from the number 6 train platform to the N/R train platform, she had to walk through a long, isolated and deserted passageway. It was in this place that she was raped, beaten, and robbed.
In light of this and other recent crimes, as well as a long history of crimes: sexual assaults and even deaths of women at subway stations, the Campaign for Safer Subway Stations is being launched.
