From Hollaback! HQ
Is it Friday already? WOW.
NOW that we’re virtually together, let’s check in with each other in this week’s edition of “A Week In Our Shoes.” Welcome. Bienvenidos. Dobrodošli.
Let’s get to it, shall we? In response to the recent harassment in Harlem, NY, Hollaback! is hosting a “Stand Up To Street Harassment” virtual community forum. It is in partnership with the Greater New York Chapter of the Links, Incorporated, and NYU McSilver Institute. This will take place in about two weeks, on Thursday, February 25th at 6:00 pm via Zoom. This interactive discussion will be led by experts from Hollaback! and of course, is free and open to the public. To register and receive Zoom login credentials visit http://bit.ly/stand-up-2021.

Dobar dan Hollaback! Croatia!! Hvala for all the amazing work that you do! Join Hollaback! Croatia in support of the “Women for Women” initiative which plans to gather essential items for women who live in the area that was devastated by the earthquake at the end of the year. Their goal is to collect donations of any kind by February 14, 2021, which could be packed in a box. In this box you can pack from hygiene items to personal items like scarves, shawls, gloves, socks, and seeds for planting. These kind donations/gifts will be given to women in Glina, Petrinja and Sisak. For additional information with regards to where to drop off the packages, please follow @Hollaback!CRO on Facebook.
