What’s up Hollaback!?
With Emily and Debjani out of HQ this week, Rachel and the interns have been hard at work. To reward all of the fabulous HeartMob donors, the group diligently packaged thank you cards and gifts to be send around the world. The support for our new platform to combat online harassment is overwhelming. We are so excited to launch HeartMob soon!
At some of our global sites:
Hollaback! Bmore Co-director Leah Mike hit the streets of Baltimore this week to educate street harassers and pedestrians on bystander intervention. Leah, nice work conveying to men how important it is for them to be allies to street harassment victims!
Hollaback! Berlin held a chalk walk in Hamburg to empower victims of street harassment to take back the streets.
Hollaback! Duke is shaking up their campus norms by discussing with their student government the issue harassment of students on campus. They are also working to find solutions to eradicate the behavior.
Shout out to Hollaback! Italia for marching in Milano Pride this past weekend!
We’ve been killing it in the press this week with Hollaback! Vancouver’s Stacey publishing their piece on her personal accounts of street harassment in GUTS and more!
Can’t wait to keep the movement going this week…
Holla and Out!
