Week in Our Shoes: Stomping Prejudice with Pride Edition

Hey Hollabackers!

This week, Hollaback! was featured in the Ottawa Community News, All Voices, and News 1.

unnamedAt the mothership, we marched at Pride this past weekend and looked fabulous while doing so. Also, we co-hosted a webinar with Women’s Health Specialists about self-help!

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

Hollaback! Cleveland participated in the Cleveland Pride Parade. Pics of the event can be found here!

Hollaback! Durham & Chapel Hill participated in PuNk CuTs eXtRaVaGaNzA, a super rad fundraiser for the Orange County Rape Crisis Center. Hollabackers shaved their heads to support and raise money for the center. Too cool for school, guys!

Hollaback! BMore co-hosted Make Your Own Quilt Square, an event where people were able to share their stories with rape/sexual assault and also to show their support for survivors through quilt squares. This event was part of The Monument Quilt. Pics from the event can be found here!

Hollaback! Italia marched at three Pride Parades this past weekend: Milan, Venice, and Turin! Way to show your support guys!

Hollaback! Appalachian Ohio was at the annual conference Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence. They spoke about the intersectionality of race and sexual assault along with ways to bring women of color leaders into the movement.

Hollaback! Berlin hosted My Name in Not Baby! this past weekend, and not only were they able to engage in discussion with others about street harassment and ways to prevent it, they also engaged in powerful dialogue about collective resistance. Great job, guys!

Hollaback! London is looking for some awesome volunteers to join their amazing team. So, if you’re in the London area and want to help, click here!

Great job as always HOLLAs! Til next week-

HOLLA and out!
