For January 2019’s Newsletter we collaborated with a Stonewall Block Leader who is currently leading efforts to educate her community about sexual harassment. We define harassment, sexual harassment, and harassment in the work place. Also, Lawyers for LGBT & Allies Network (LLAN) also provided information on anti-harassment laws in Japan and the provisions these laws make.
