Each organization we collaborate with receives a custom experience tailored to your needs to shape your anti-harassment policies, train your staff, and facilitate restorative practices in your community.
MAKE A MORE POWERFUL CONTRIBUTION TO THE MOVEMENT.
For over a decade, Hollaback!’s global people-powered movement has shared its proven methodologies – from online to the streets to the workplace – to end harassment. Hollaback! offers hands-on, in-person trainings that meet NYS & NYC Law that moves beyond do’s and don’ts. Be a leader in the non-profit sector and empower your board, staff and volunteers to make a difference. Our offerings include:
- Bystander Intervention Training [pdf] Our research shows that as little as a knowing glance can reduce trauma in the face of harassment, but the wrong response can actually increase trauma. We’ll equip your employees with the right information on how to be an effective bystander in the midst of workplace harassment.
- Annual Sexual Harassment Prevention Training [pdf] We’ll provide your staff with a robust, interactive sexual harassment training that is compliant with state, city, and federal laws. Our training defines harassment and offers resources in the event that sexual harassment occurs on your team. We’ll ensure that your team understands complaint filing and retaliation, and we will return each year to train new hires. Not sure if sexual harassment training is required in your state?

- De-escalation Training. We’ll work with your team to understand conflict de-escalation, learn tools to help you engage counter protestors while you are in community-based work environments such as rallies & direct actions, and practice conflict de-escalation as a complement to established processes and procedures related to your workplace.
- Healing the Healers. Justice work is exhausting. How are you healing? We’ll facilitate workshops to enhance self-care and community building for your team. Hollaback! will provide tools for individuals to successfully manage stress, competing timelines, roles and responsibilities, while also creating rapport across your team through restorative practices.

READ WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
Jessie Johnson, Human Resources Officer, Northwest Youth Corp:
“I thought the “Preventing Sexual Harassment” training was an EXCELLENT training. I have attended many over the past 17 years of leadership and this was the best that I have seen. The presenter was not only sensitive to the content of the material and its potential effect on others, but was highly educated in the field as well. Thank you for the experience and hardwork towards creating an inclusive and safe work environment for all.”
Christian Cabrera, Director of Student Services, Broome Street Academy:
“Hollaback!’s work is so important… it develops a platform to open up the dialogue with students and staff who may feel it’s pointless and out of their control to talk about street harassment. After Hollaback!’s workshop, our staff began to reflect on their own experiences of street harassment, which fortified another layer of relationships with our students here at Broome Street Academy.”
Ada Gregory, Director of Duke University Women’s Center:
“[Hollaback!’s Executive Director] Emily [May] is a force to be reckoned with and sparks others to be too. Her talk at Duke inspired, provoked and challenged the audience to see street harassment and their power to change it as essential to the feminist movement. She is clear, real and unwavering. Watching her is like seeing change happen before your eyes.”
