This week we said farewell to our incredible Research and Development Intern, Lindsey! Thank you Lindsey for your months of amazing work, dedication, and blazin’ hot spirit! YOU ROCK!!
Hollaback! co-sponsored NOW-NYC’s Mayoral Forum on women and girls which took place on Tuesday at Pace University. On Thursday, we attended the New York Women’s Foundation Breakfast.
Our Program Associate, Jae Cameron wrote a kickass Op-ed in the Huffington Post on how, “Street Harassment is an LGBTQIA Issue.” Check it out! We also got some sweet shout outs this week in The Times News and Whitehot Magazine.
AND here’s what hollas around the world are up to:
Site Leaders, Eglantine and Aurore are hosting a workshop on Hollaback! and street harassment at the Queer, feminist and social media praxis workshop/conference this month in Brighton. BUT they need your help! Travelling ain’t free unfortunately, so the hollas set up a GoFundMe campaign! Please spread the word and help them get to Brighton!!
Hollaback! Chemnitz had their launch party last week! At the party, guests released their self-published zines and celebrated the beginning of Hollaback! Chemnitz. Check out the lovely photos of the event!
