Imagine a world where everyone could walk down the street unimpeded – with the sun in their face or the wind at their back – and revel in the joys of their surroundings, whether in a rural landscape or an urban jungle. Envision a society where all of us can enjoy a concert, a night out, a jog through campus or a ride home free of harassment from strangers. Picture a global community where anyone could log onto their favorite website and express their opinions openly, freely and respectfully without being ridiculed or threatened.
That world is possible, and with your help we can help make it happen.
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.
Our mission is to build safe, inclusive public spaces by transforming the culture that perpetuates discrimination and violence. We carry out this mission by building the power of people to create measurable and long-lasting impacts in the movement for gender justice.
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.
We’ll invite our community to #maketomorrowtoday, by taking one loving action, large or small, that they’ve thought about but never acted on.
