Description

About Hollaback!

Hollaback! is a global, people-powered movement to end harassment. We work together to understand the problem, ignite public conversations, and develop innovative strategies that ensure equal access to public spaces. We leverage the very spaces where harassment happens – from online to the streets – to have each other’s backs, create communities of resistance, and build a world where we can all be who we are, wherever we are.


The fellowship will run for a full year with an estimated time commitment of 20 hours per week. We offer a $400 stipend per month. The candidate will work from our office in downtown Brooklyn for the first six months, and then will be given the option to work from home 1-2 days a week based on performance.
