From Hollaback! HQ
Thank you Friday for gracing us with your presence this afternoon. We’ve been waiting for you for ages. Welcome Hollas, to the latest edition of “A Week In Our Shoes” where we update and remind you of all the activities and progress that’s been happening. Thank you always for your continued support as we are all paving the way forward for a better tomorrow. Speaking of a better tomorrow, with your warm heart and dedication to fighting against harassment, we urge you to visit https://iheartmob.org/resources and read the various resources on improving your digital security. For a quick primer, check out the hashtag #SafeWithHeartMob on our social media channels first – we break down all the information and make it even easier to digest. For those of you who may not know, HeartMob is a community and safe space working to help end online harassment. We believe that the freedom of speech online doesn’t mean anything if people are not free from abuse and harassment. With our toolkit of resources you will learn how to respond to online harassment, understanding the concept of online harassment and much more. We are sharing resources all summer long with you. Don’t miss out.
Also, in case you’ve missed our previous newsletter, here’s what you missed. Today, you can be a part of the Hollaback! Team remotely. Are you an eager, detail-oriented person who yearns to fight against street harassment in all forms? Would you like to work with a non-profit organization that mirrors your core values?
