A Robbinsville
Dedication For
Samantha 

The Township of Robbinsville had Fresh Start Landscaping build a patio and rock garden and it was dedicated to Samantha in September at our fundraiser.
The center piece was just put in today by Fresh Start. It took about 5-6 months to have made. We just wanted to share with everyone as 3 years is quickly approaching unfortunately! Thank you to Robbinsville Twp and Fresh Start.

LYFT RELEASES SEXUAL ASSAULT DATA; 4,158 INCIDENTS; 360 RAPE REPORTS OVER 3 YEARS

CNN- Oct 22, 2021

Ridehail company Lyft on Thursday released its first ever safety report, disclosing that it received 4,158 reports of sexual assault on its platform in 2017, 2018, and 2019.
 

The disclosure comes more than three years after Lyft (LYFT) and its rival Uber (UBER) first pledged to release safety reports disclosing incidents of sexual assault and abuse on their platforms after a CNN investigation.

The company's release shows that among the sexual assault reports it received, 360 were reports of rape. It also reported 10 deaths from physical assaults that occurred on its platform over the three years.

UBER RELEASES SAFETY REPORT REVEALING 5,981 INCIDENTS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT

CNN- Dec 6, 2019

Uber released its highly-anticipated safety report on Thursday revealing, among other details, that it received 5,981 reports of sexual assault in 2017 and 2018.

Among those, there were 464 reports of rape.

The report, which comes more than a year after a CNN investigation into sexual assault and abuse on the ride-hailing service, also noted there were 19 deaths caused by physical assault during 2017 and 2018.
