HEARTMOB
  • Over the past few months, our team has been working on one of our most exciting HeartMob developments yet. It hasn’t been easy to keep this secret but now we can finally share the surprise! We’ve launched the HeartBot, a specialized Twitter account designed to log private reports of online abuse and respond directly to harassers… all while keeping everyone else out of it. Currently only HeartMobbers will have access, so we encourage you to sign up today!
COMING UP
  • We will be co-hosting an in-person bystander intervention training! The training will be at the Brooklyn Public Library on Saturday, March 4th. If you want to get trained up but don’t live in the area, don’t forget we’re hosting regular webinars.

With love and solidarity,

-The Hollaback Team
