Hey Hollabackers!

This week, Hollaback! was featured in The Guardian, ArtInFact Magazine, USA Today, Free Press, SheWired, MSNBCYahoo! Shine, Upworthy, Slate, NBC San DiegoSpotlight Magazine, Irish Independent, and The Province.

We held our second annual HOLLA::Revolution which included our Site Leader Retreat (pictured here)!! Stay tuned for an upcoming Storify and event re-cap from the Team! We also said farewell to our amazing Spring Interns, Arielle Humphries and Emily Shown, and welcomed our Summer Interns, Rebecca Ponce de Leon and Jessica Alvarez, reppin’ Duke’s Moxie Program.

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

Hollaback! Baltimore signed on Ladyfest to their Safer Spaces Campaign – a  female- and LGBTQ-focused music festival happening this weekend! Awesome!

Hollaback! Belfast attended an Emergency Rally Against Racism at Belfast City Hall to rally against racism increasing on their streets toward Belfast’s migrants & ethnic minorities.

Hollaback! Croatia is holding a Chalk Walk today!

Hollaback! Des Moines presented at Central Iowa Friends of Planned Parenthood’s monthly Choice on Tap Happy Hour!

Hollaback! Italia hosted a workshop on changing people’s perceptions and showing them how they can respond to street harassment.

Hollaback! Korea is hosting a discussion tomorrow about street harassment at the Gwangju GIC Talk.

Hollaback! LA was on a show called ‘Your Call’ via KALW 91.7fm public radio in San Francisco.

Hollaback! Philly‘s petition to San Diego Comic Con was dismissed by the company thus silencing over 2,000 people who said they don’t feel safe or protected with their vague, unenforced anti-harassment policy. They’re hosting three events between now and the convention where they will continue to push the petition and the effort. You can join the conversation on various social media platforms using #SDCCFAIL and #SDCCHARASSMENT. Last but not least, they will be delivering the petition in person to San Diego Comic Con to demand they hear the voices of the people telling the con they don’t feel safe or protected. You go, HB! Philly!

Til next week-

HOLLA and out!
