In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, many people have come forward to tell us about how the rise in harassment and violence in the U.S. is impacting them. We have also heard about the strong desire for people to rise up, speak out, and intervene when they see harassment happening.
With so many eager to step up, we need everyone to be equipped with the right information on how to be an effective bystander in the midst of violence enacted within our communities.
Our training, hosted by Debjani Roy, Deputy Director of Hollaback!, will prepare participants with the tools needed to respond to harassment and protect the rights of everyone.
Hollaback! is a global movement to end harassment powered by a network of grassroots activists. We work together to understand harassment, ignite public conversations, and develop innovative strategies to ensure equal access to public spaces. We leverage new technologies to bring voice to an issue that historically has been silenced, and to build leadership within this movement to break the silence.
