iStreetWatch is a website http://www.istreetwatch.co.uk/ created in response to the rise in street harassment following the referendum result.

  1. It is connected to Google maps to create a visual map of racist and xenophobic incidents in the UK as they happen.
  2. Moderators publish the reports online to the map and timeline so that people can see when and where harassment is happening.
  3. People are also asked to visit the site to take a pledge to challenge racism and xenophobia and speak up when it is safe to do so.
