A Week In Our Shoes: Transitions and Settling In

Debjani at Duke

Hi hollas! 

Check out the exciting things we’ve been up to here in NYC and at our sites around the world…


It’s been a little calmer in the office this week. We have a new staff member settling in and interns saying goodbye.

  • Debjani went down to North Carolina for Duke Engage to deliver three in-person bystander intervention trainings and speak on a panel!
  • We’re raising money to fight back against rampant harassment and hate! Donate any amount to Hollaback! before the end of May and you’ll receive a resistance sticker pack to help boost your voice as you fight for change.
