Take action against street harassment: don’t just walk on… Hollaback!
We all have the right to feel safe, confident, and sexy, without being objectified. You’re better than street harassment. We believe you have the power to end it. Hollaback!
Hollaback!is a Brooklyn based crowd-sourced movement to end street harassment. Using mobile technology, we encourage ladies to hollaback at comments such as "Hey baby, nice tits," groping, stalking, and even public masturbation.

A group of concerned students met on Hope’s campus today in an attempt to promote honest dialogue regarding Hope’s policies on LGBTQ students and inclusion into the campus community. After being confronted by campus authorities, the cops were called and the students were forced to disperse….
I am so proud of the students who lead this action. They are agents of change!
