A Week in Our Shoes: Two Weeks of Resistance

Happy Friday Hollas! We have a jam-packed two week addition for you today. With the end of the year coming up before we know it, we’ve been working hard in the office and around the world.  Here’s a quick overview of some of the amazing activism that we’re involved in right now.

FROM HOLLABACK HQGiving Tuesday

  • On #GivingTuesday Hollaback! reached out to our base to support our ongoing work to end harassment in public spaces. Thanks to our amazing community, we exceeded our goal of $10,000! We’re still working to raise $30,000 before the end of the year – and with #GivingTuesday, have started out strong. A big thank you to everyone who donated, shared, and supported the call to action!
  • We had a successful Train the Trainer session all this week and certified new people on how to do Bystander Intervention training.
  • We held a train the trainer for Make the Road NY in collaboration with Anti Violence Project.
  • Emily was featured in Forbes, The Guardian, Buzzfeed and beyond discussing the current outpour of stories about sexual assault.
