Week In Our Shoes: Coffee Talk Edition

          University of Arizona student shares why they Hollaback!

Hello Hollabackers!

This week, Hollaback! was featured in Backdrop Magazine, Belgian Marie Claire, ASOS Zine, Philadelphia Magazine, and the Philly Daily News.

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

Hollaback! Baltimore hosted an Offline Coffee & Chat on Tuesday, a casual gathering for their community members to get together, meet fellow feminists, make new friends, and get more involved with Hollaback!

Hollaback! London made this awesome “YOU WATCH YOUR MOUTH, BUDDY” Thelma & Louise t-shirt in collaboration with House of Astbury, a cycling clothing company. They were also featured on London’s Community Channel talking about social media and activism. The video will be posted here soon.

Hollaback! Philly had their Human Trafficking in the United States speaker series yesterday. It was a TEDx style event that discussed the complexities and nuances of human trafficking in the United States. Attendees learned about warning signs, what good samaritans can do about human trafficking, and the extent and scope of the human trafficking happening right in their own backyards.

Hollaback! Polska has been celebrating European Day for Victims of Crime (followed in Poland by Week of Help to Survivors of Crime) by launching an educational campaign on Facebook concerning Polish Card of Victim’s Rights. As of Saturday the 22nd, they have shared one poster every day to describe the rights of victims guaranteed under Polish law.

Hollaback! Tucson attended a #BodySmartFair to talk to students and staff from the University of Arizona about street harassment.

Awesome work, HOLLAs! Let’s keep the conversations going! Til next time,

HOLLA and out!
