What people say about us

"Fairspace is an innovative organization that can make the topic of (street) harassment accessible for different groups. In the field of bystander intervention, I see their methodology as unique in the Netherlands. As a partner in projects, through co-creation we have been able to uncover a lot of information that otherwise would have remained unknown. I enjoy working with the Fairspace team and can highly recommend them."
