Hollaback addresses gender-based violence in public spaces, in a safe, easy and empowering way. We believe that ending sexual harassment and violence in public spaces will be the defining feminist issue for the current generation of activists, much like addressing workplace sexual harassment was decades ago.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

creating a new media platform to track when and where harassment happens, Hollaback will soon be an important catalyst that challenges social norms, engages communities, pushes for tougher laws, and eventually ends sexual harassment.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with Emily and the other Hollaback co-founders is rewarding and enriching. I'm so excited to help leverage my experience and their successful track record, to take this work to the next level.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

passionate, dedicated, experts in their fields and going the extra mile to make Hollaback a success!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

roll out a global engagement program, with comprehensive community organizing and education campaigns, that linked harassment activists around the world to realize systemic change!

When we founded HollabackNYC five years ago, we thought we'd be able to bring raise some consciousness in our city about street harassment. We had no idea the idea would take off the way it did, and now we're pushing forward to take the project to the next level by really giving women and LGBTQ folks powerful tools to respond to harassment, and to give Hollaback! the ability to build effective public policy and advocacy materials. The reorganization of Hollaback brings co-founder Emily May into the position of Executive Director, bringing a smart, savvy, and experienced leader in to focus on street harassment full time. The organization under her leadership has already developed a new website and iPhone app, a corps of volunteers, and an international network of chapters.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my work as a boardmember and co-founder, witnessing the tremendous response from users and activists around the world, as well as from the media who highlight our work and thus raise awareness on street harassment.

Hollaback is a unique and effective movement that is going to end street harassment with the right trust, support, and resources. I'm extremely proud to be a part of such a multi-faceted, comprehensive, and in-your-face approach to asserting women's rights to be on the street. Hollaback is badass- and I wouldn't change a thing.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

How people have begun to think about street harassment in my own life, and how the reaction to my work with Hollaback has always been gratitude and respect for the project.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

enthusiastic, excited, and happy to be a part of HB.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

seriously end street harassment through a culture of speaking up and out, and exposing those who disrespect others.
