Hollaback!

Hollaback! Hollaback! is a global movement to end harassment in public spaces. 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. We envision a world where all people have the freedom to move through public space, participate in civic life, and reach their full potential. In this world, women and LGBTQ+ individuals will never face violence and discrimination as they walk down the street, go to school, sit in the park, attend a public protest, or participate online or in media. We all have the right to be who we are, whatever that means that day, that hour, that minute.

Mission: 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.

Heal Metoo Podcast & Festival

Say you're present when sexual harassment, racist abuse, or even police violence are going down. There are many different ways to be of support and care for those experiencing harm.

If your sense of personal safety (and relative privilege) allow you to speak up, here are two of the intervention styles covered in Hollaback! trainings to consider: "Distract" vs. "Direct."

Start learning how to use these techniques safely and appropriately from iHollaback! Deputy Director Jorge Arteaga in 4 1-minute excerpts from #HealMeToo #Podcast Season 3 Episode 9: Bystander Intervention for Racism, Police Violence & Ending Harassment in All Its Forms.

#SundayRead: “When they had a chance to rethink saying something offensive, 93% of the time, young people change their mind.” Young people change the culture! We're so inspired by Trisha Prabhu's work against cyberbullying:
