Hollaback! New Orleans, the newly launched local chapter of the international movement to end street harassment, will host a roundtable Saturday January 31. The roundtable is an informal discussion of street harassment experiences, programming ideas, and involvement opportunities.
“Hollaback! New Orleans empowers women and victims of harassment to ‘Hollaback’ by sharing their stories online and with the phone app,” said Hollaback! New Orleans Site Director Vanessa Smith, “The roundtable is an opportunity to have open dialogue and collaborate on ways to fight street harassment offline.”
For those who have witnessed street harassment and were not sure what to do, the roundtable will also discuss bystander intervention and victim advocacy. All are welcome to attend: victims, survivors, bystanders, and allies of the movement. The roundtable is free and open to the public.
