STCN’s Cynthia Newton Presents to the Portland Society April 1, 2015

On April 1, STCN partner Cynthia F. Newton presented her program, “Fighting Back Smart: 10 Tips on Dealing with Street Harassment” to the women of the Portland Society. The Portland Society is a group of professional women who are passionate about bicycling in Portland and work together to support each other through referral, education, and community.  Cynthia provided the legal framework for harassment violations and practical tips on how effectively to gather key information needed to make a successful harassment report.  She emphasized the importance of reporting harassment in order to deter behavior, protect others from harm and create a record so law enforcement can identify harassers and enforce civil and/or criminal penalties.

Cynthia is a personal injury lawyer, construction accident lawyer and medical negligence lawyer based in downtown Portland.
