All New Yorkers, regardless of gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation, have the right to move freely through public spaces, and as New Yorkers we are all responsible for building safe and equitable communities.
In 2021, Hollaback!, L’Oréal Paris, the NYC Commission on Gender Equity, have joined forces to ensure everyone’s self-worth, leveraging Hollaback!’s 5D’s methodology to help people safely intervene when they experience or witness harassment in public spaces. In this virtual forum, Erika Dautruche and Gabriela Mejia will share a clear, adaptable, and expert-approved set of tools that have been proven to reduce the prevalence of street harassment. The goal of the Hollaback!'s Stand Up efforts is to train 40,000 New Yorkers before the end of 2021 and ultimately build a culture where street harassment is seen as unacceptable behavior.
