Ongoing Online Campaigns HOLLA World-Wide (We want your submissions! Get creative!)
Harassment Is – Blog, vlog, tweet, post, or email your story of what #harassmentis, and how it’s different for you because of your visible and non-visible identities. Check out the report that set it off, “Harassment Is: An exploration of identity and street harassment” inviting you to practice recognizing how people’s identities and oppressions overlap and how that can affect how they walk down the street.
“Dear John,” Letters to Street Harassers – Wish you could have responded more thoroughly? Here’s your chance.
Cats Against Catcalling – They’re really just not into it.
We Chalk Walk – It’s super easy to reclaim your space and holla back with chalk.
Said No One Ever – Great example: “It really put a spring in my step when a car load of men asked to see my breasts. Said no one ever.”

Feb 15 – Hollaback Offline Coffee & Chat — Feb 2015 Need an excuse to get off the damn Internet and actually chat with real human beings? Well, this is it!
Meet us at Peace & A Cup of Joe on 713 W. Pratt St. Check out their Facebook page for directions, a menu and more info.
They have coffee, pastries and a few vegan/vegetarian options. ~*We know not everyone will be able to purchase something, but it is important that we support this locally owned business for allowing us to take over the place for a couple hours.*~
We want to be in the same room with our volunteers, supporters, fellow awesome ladies, LGBTQ folks and male allies who want to end street harassment. This is a casual gathering for us to vent, share tips, swap stories, and just laugh about the ridiculousness of it all.
