Happy Friday Hollas! Welcome to the new edition of “A Week In Our Shoes” newsletter that keeps you up to date with our latest news and provides the necessary Bystander Intervention tips for harassment and more. We hope you’ve been enjoying this summer and have taken the pledge to intervene the next time you see harassment. Taking the pledge is important because harassment should not be a part of summer! Many of us have been harassed for the way we look, dress, our gender and our identity. Let’s take the stance to fight against harassment this summer. We have created a free guide to Bystander Intervention to help you be prepared. For more information on how to pledge and receiving your free Bystander Intervention copy, click here.
