Hey Hollabackers!

This week, Hollaback! was featured in WomeneticsMontreal MetroCat Call Back, Shout Out! JMU, Away She Goes, and Strike! Magazine.

At the Mothership, Deputy Director, Debjani Roy, trained student leaders at the New School Social Justice Hub on Friday.

And…drum roll, please….

We launched 8 NEW SITES! We are SO excited to welcome these sites to the HOLLA family:
Hollaback! East Lansing, Hollaback! Columbus, Hollaback! Plattsburgh, Hollaback! Cleveland, Hollaback! Hull University, Hollaback! Bristol UK, Hollaback! Bahamas, and Hollaback! Marrakesh

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

Hollaback! Bahamas started this survey to learn the prevalence of street harassment in The Bahamas and its effects on those experiencing it. It will further equip them to appropriately respond to street harassment in The Bahamas.

Hollaback! Baltimore attended the University of Maryland Baltimore County’s Take Back the Night event. They also worked with activist organization FORCE to create quilt squares for The Monument Quilt, a creative project that provides a participatory platform for survivors to tell their stories while working together to forever change how people in the US respond to rape.

Hollaback! Boston presented at this year’s Civil Liberties and Public Policy Conference on The Intersection of Street Harassment & Reproductive Justice.

Hollaback! Des Moines co-hosted a production of Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues.

Hollaback! Italia was at Libera Università delle donne talking about how social networks can help in the fight against street harassment.

Hollaback! Montreal was on 98.5fm Montreal with Isabelle Maréchal, talking about their collaborations with local organizations in working to end street harassment.

Hollaback! Philly started this survey for feedback on their recent Transit Ad Campaign.

Fantastic work, HOLLAs!

HOLLA and out!
