Aug 24 – Feed The Scene Presents 8/24: Safer Spaces Training (7PM – 9PM) [Feed The Scene, 3512 Bank St]
Hollaback Bmore is working to build a network of supportive non-threatening environments within our city. The Baltimore Safer Space Pledge, aligns spaces with this campaign, as well as declaring their commitment to ending harassment against women and LGBTQIA folks. If you experience gender-based harassment or violence while in these spaces (or anywhere with our official Safer Spaces Poster) the staff should take you seriously, deal with the harasser, and offer support resources if you need them.]”
Come join us at the Feed The Scene house and learn how to navigate what goes into running a scene that is safe and respectful from War On Women and Hollaback Bmore‘s very own Shawna Potter!!! BYOdrinks, light apps will be provided. ANYONE AND EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO ATTEND. Even if you don’t “run” a scene. If you are curious about the concept, are thinking about becoming more active in a community, or just want to make some rad friends who are all dedicated to making our scenes better, come hang out.
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.
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.”
