A Week in Our Shoes: Hollaback! in full force

Happy Friday Hollas! We can’t believe it’s already December. The fall has been a whirlwind of constant news on sexual assault and harassment. The week, Time magazine put out their piece on Silence Breakers recapping some of the amazing voices behind the movement. It was awesome and inspiring. We have been trying to break the silence– and holla back– with our own work for quite some time now. Here’s the latest:

FROM HOLLABACK HQ

  • Emily did four Bystander Intervention trainings in Portland this week with TriMet transportation authorities.
  • We’re still working to raise $30,000 before the end of the year – and with #GivingTuesday, we’ve started out strong. Thank you again to everyone who has donated. If you want to support our work against harassment, there is still time to donate before the end of the year.
