Stop Violence in its Tracks: Hollaback!
Violence is often the poison fruit of a long history of the microaggressions we witness happening around us every week. What might we do to intervene in those incidents of harassment and disrespect to make the world less violent? This presentation shows us ways to make a real difference.
Hollaback! is a global leader in the movement to end harassment. We believe that we all deserve to be who we are, wherever we are. Hollaback! works in communities to understand the problem, ignite public conversations, and develop innovative strategies that result in safe and welcoming environments for all. Hollaback! has trained over 100,000 people how to intervene when they witness harassment. To learn more, please visit www.ihollaback.org
