Hello Hollaback! supporters! Check out this week’s news and updates from the exciting world of Hollaback! and our endeavors to stamp out street harassment.

Out and About: We met with students from Rutgers and NYU to discuss our forthcoming campus harassment initiative. I also met with Councilmember Chin’s office to talk about street harassment in Lower Manhattan.

Support: We are extremely grateful to the Ben and Jerry’s Foundation for supporting our national movement-building work.

In the PressSPIN Magazine interviewed us for their May issue (because we’re rockstars, clearly) and WNBC came to talk to me about a recent rape case.

Hollaback! Around the World: Hollaback! Bogota participated in the SlutWalk Bogota, Columbia. Hollaback! Twin Cities got a shout out on the University of Minnesota Women’s Center Blog written when their site leader Ami Wazlawwik stepped up as a guest blogger. In celebration of National Women’s Day on March 8th, Hollaback! Winnipeg made it in to Uptown. Hollaback! Istanbul was on the front cover of  Turkey’s Today’s Zaman.

Thanks for another fantastic week of fighting street harassment — you make this all possible!

HOLLA and out!
Emily
