HOLLA::Revolution, the first international speaker’s series on street harassment, was held on July 25th at NYU and live-streamed on ihollaback.org/hollarevolution/. It was an historic event, with 18 speakers presenting topics ranging from “un/doing masculinity: street harassment and boihood” and “media representations of street harassment” to “the future of funding the feminist movement” and “youth organizing around street harassment”.
Hollaback! would like to thank their sponsors for their support in making HOLLA::Revolution happen:
Catapult: Catapult is young crowdfunding platform that’s already making a huge impact for girls and women. Catapult connects a new global audience directly to organizations working on the frontlines for girls and women’s rights. Since launching in October 2012 Catapult has already funded hundreds of projects worldwide. Catapult helps people use the open democracy of the web to choose girls and women’s projects closest to their hearts, and track progress and results. This approach – participating in the solution – is key to today’s young and rising global citizenship movement.
Despaña: Despaña is a New York based food and wine shop and provided us with the beautiful wines for our cocktail hour.
Internet Garage: Internet Garage is a great internet and printing shop in Brooklyn and provided us with the signage for the event.
Lagunitas: Lagunitas is a solid brewing company that supplied the tasty beer for the cocktail hour
Lifeway: Lifeway creates amazing kefir products. Like all good missions, theirs is simply expressed: They’re here to provide the best in probiotic and nutritious foods. They’re here to improve the health of our customers. And they’re here to leave the world a better place than we found it.
