Help us fund the first ever HOLLA: Revolution Conference!

Hollaback! will host HOLLA::Revolution, an international conference to establish a global strategy to disrupt the normalization of street harassment, in New York City this July. The conference will bring together 250 leaders, who have been trained by Hollaback! to fight street harassment in their local communities.

Hollaback! has trained young leaders—who come from 62 cities and 25 countries—to build skills in on-the-ground activism and digital storytelling to create powerful change. Collectively, they have performed more than 25 research projects, met with 150 legislators, collected 4,000 stories, trained more than 2,500 people, held 50 rallies and walks, spoken with more than 750 media outlets, and brought the issue of street harassment into the limelight in their communities and on-line. But the power of the Internet only extends so far.

HOLLA::Revolution will have two parts:

  • HOLLA::Revolution: A forum for critical dialogues on street harassment and international movement building in a digital age. Leading street harassment thinkers and activists will inspire and empower through multimedia talks, performances, presentations, and readings on subjects ranging from street harassment, the future of activism, online organizing, local and international movement building, and more! The event will be hosted by Jamia Wilson, chief storyteller at TED, and will be live-streamed internationally on July 25th from 2-5pm at New York University.
  • HOLLA::Revolution Retreat: Immediately following the public event, Hollaback!’s international leaders will gather to establish a global strategy to disrupt the normalization of street harassment. The three-day retreat will engage young leaders to collaborate and find new solutions and responses to the epidemic of street harassment. The retreat will be packed with skill sharing opportunities, workshops, on the ground activism, and talks to discuss the future of the global movement to end street harassment once and for all.

We aim to create the next generation of feminist leaders, to develop a global agenda to end street harassment and to build the community support necessary for the movement’s long-term success. From California to Mumbai and London to South Africa, and all the way here in Ottawa, help us put an end, once and for all, to street harassment.
