This week, our Executive Director, Emily May, gave a TED City 2.0 talk as she accepted her TED City 2.0 award.

Hollaback! was featured by MSN News Online, Feminist Current, The Daily Californian, Genius Online, TED Prize and the West: Welfare, Society, Territory; we posted the HOLLA::Revolution promo video on our main page; DD, Debjani, trained 70 men and women at Turning Point in Brooklyn; and Stacy Bullard joined our team as the new Development and Research Intern!

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

Hollaback LA is leading a talk and workshop with an art museum in Rancho Cucamonga today. Thursday, they partnered up with the End Violence online forum. They’ve just developed a new Spanish-language version of their city postcard. Plans are to branch out into the Orange county and San Fernando Valley with some awesome new volunteers!

Hollaback Ottawa is hosting a Chalk Walk today after the resounding success of their last one!

Hollaback Philly is trying to shake things up in City Hall! Their survey is up and ready for participants to take in anticipation of their City Hall meeting, which is soon to come.

Hollaback Boston is hosting a Take Back the Bar event tonight. They will be reclaiming public space and creating a supportive environment for people to hang out (and enjoy a beer!).

Hollaback Hamilton is working with McMaster University to potentially have a group of students to coordinate event planning for McMaster’s Fall experiential education program. Jess of Hollaback Hamilton has been asked to speak of the Leadership for Summit for Women– a one day conference about leadership in Hamilton.

HOLLA and out!
