HBDC! Anti-Street Harassment Workshop

We are thrilled to announce we are holding another Anti-Street Harassment Workshop at S.A.L.S.A on November 17th. Best of all, it is FREE for you to attend, so register soon!

Anti-Street Harassment Workshop 6:45-8:45pm Free
Studies show that at least 80 to 100 percent of women are sexually harassed in a public setting at least once in their life. However, we don’t talk about this type of gender-based harassment when we discuss violence against women. Gender-based public sexual harassment can be anything from verbal harassment to physical, leading to sometimes fatal consequences. Since many of us (women, LGBT, men) face this type of harassment during our daily intereactions and don’t know what to do, come to this workshop! Join Holla Back DC! in a part interactive, part lecture workshop showcasing the history of anti-street harassment activism in DC, highlighting common scenarios of street harassment, and tips on how to address the harassment.

Learn to Holla Back Online and In-Person: Anti-Violence Activism On the Streets and On the Web (Mary Graydon Center, Room 200)

What is street harassment? Shouldn’t you just ignore it? What’s the big deal? These are frequently asked questions about gender-based public sexual harassment posed to the Holla Back DC! online community. Holla Back DC!  is an organization fighting street harassment in America’s capital by empowering Washingtonians to speak out against gender-based public sexual harassment. We believe that everyone has a right to use public space, including sidewalks, Metro, and cabs without being harassed. And we showcase people’s experiences through our blog, Twitter, and Facebook. This workshop will highlight the ups and downs of utilizing web 2.0, common scenarios of gender-based public sexual harassment, and tips on how to address harassers. Unlike Gwen Stefani, we want everyone, regardless of gender, to be a hollaback person.
