A Week in Our Shoes: 2/10/12

Me and Councilmember Ferraras

BY EMILY MAY

Hello Hollaback! supporters and revolutionaries!

Take a look at this week ‘s HOLLAnews and updates with our latest installment:

- Awesome Collaborations: We spent the week hanging out with Jenn Sayre and Marigail Sexton from national bystander campaign, Greendot, hammering out our collaboration with them, which will include trainings on how to be a bystander administered by our site leaders.  To learn more about our soon-to-launch bystander initiative, see our “I’ve Got Your Back” campaign video.

- Out and About: I was honored to be invited to Council Member Julissa Ferrera’s State of the District address on Thursday in Jackson Heights where she discussed her ongoing commitment to ending street harassment.  Plans for the coming year include holding the 2nd annual street harassment hearing in April and a community safety audit in Elmhurst/Jackson Heights.

- In the Press: Hollaback! and Hollaback! Baltimore got a shout out from North Baltimore Patch columnist Mike Moran.

Thanks Hollaback! supporters for another fantastic week of fighting street harassment and keeping the revolution alive!

HOLLA and out!

Emily
