A week in our shoes: LBGTQ RIGHTS EDITION

Dear Hollabackers –

Check out what’s shaking with the global movement this week:

HollabackPHILLY’s Director Rochelle Keyhan wrote an iReport on street harassment for CNN!

Hollaback! Gent had a press release demanding more initiatives on raising awareness about homophobia in Gent. They got some pressottawa coverage and received an invitation from the Alderman for Equal Opportunities to come and discuss their forthcoming LGBT action plan for the city!

Hollaback! Italy wrote a post about their trip to New York City and meeting with the Hollaback! NYC staff.

Hollaback! Boston successfully got a company to take down offensive ads on their MBTA trains after launching a campaign on social media and in the press. They continued their “Introducing!” series with a post introducing Lily! They also announced their involvement in a coalition to ELEVATE Boston for the upcoming Boston mayoral election.

Hollaback! Ottawa is hosting a fundraiser at a local gallery complete with visual and performance art TONIGHT! And tomorrow, they’ll be at SlutWalk Ottawa.

Hollaback! Brussels participated in a Kiss In in honor of LGBT rights!

Until next week!

HOLLA and out –

Emily
