Week In Our Shoes: Out on the Streets Edition

Hello Hollabackers!1385324_10100257384437525_375236349_n

This week Hollaback! was featured by the Huffington Post, Boston Magazine, Metro News, One Equal World, and Stop Street Harassment; Hollaback!’s ED, Emily May traveled to Houston to shoot a video for the Giving Library, she was interviewed for a documentary on social entrepreneurship and was featured on Bronxnet.

Here’s what the HOLLAs around the world have been up to:

Hollaback Belfast announced their new partnership with Here NI, a community organization dedicated to improving the lives of lesbian and bisexual women in Northern Ireland.

Hollaback Boston, released an infographic via the data from their newly launched State of The Streets Report. They were featured on Boston Neighborhood Network TV and have gotten impressive press coverage on the report so far.

Hollaback Alberta participated in Take Back the Night Edmonton. They tabled at the event and even spoke with Edmonton mayoral candidate, Don Iveson, regarding gender-based violence in public space.

Hollaback Ottawa participated in Take Back the Night last Thursday as well! They also had a table where they got a ton of people signed up to keep informed on their work. Ottawa leader, Julie Lalonde, won “Best Volunteer in a Leading Role” award at the Volunteer Ottawa Award Gala, in large part because of her work with Holla! in her city. Congrats!

Great job, peeps!

HOLLA and out!
