La necesidad: ¿Cuál es el problema que tratas de solucionar?
In about 60% of the 3,000 street harassment incidences submitted to Hollaback!, the person being harassed reports that witnesses existed – but failed to act. In a content analysis of these stories that is now being performed by Cornell University, the initial findings show that positive bystander responses made street harassment more likely to cease, but positive bystander responses were extremely rare. Street harassment has historically been normalized and underreported. As a consequence, most lack empathy towards victims and feel that intervening is “not their problem.”
La solución: ¿Cuál es tu solución? Sé específico.
The “I’ve got your back” educational campaign is designed to build empathy by developing the capacity in students to emotionally connect with the feeling of being harassed or having someone they love harassed. Developed in collaboration with Green Dot, an award-winning bystander campaign based in evidence-based research, this educational campaign acknowledges the real concerns of students in intervention – including safety, shyness, and a fear of being made fun of—and teaches students to identify realistic intervention options including asking people who are harassed if they are OK, developing a distraction, or contacting authority figures. In addition, students will be invited to report their bystander interventions through our iPhone, Droid, and website in green alongside the thousands of stories of harassment already documented on the site in pink.

An “I’ve Got Your Back” workshop is performed at Jose’s school on Monday. On Wednesday, he is walking to school when he hears someone yell, “hey baby, I want to hit that” to his classmate. He’s heard this man say things before, but he’s always felt scared to act because the man is much larger than him. This time, he keeps walking but when he and the girl are out of earshot asks her if she is OK. He offers to tell the teacher with her, and she agrees. When they get to school, they report the incident together. As it turns out, this man has been harassing several students on their way to school. The school principle addresses it by relocating the school crossing guard to the area where the man regularly harasses girls. Jose tells his story on ihollaback.org later that night. His story is posted, and the next day he receives an email saying that 327 people read his story and anonymously clicked the “I’ve Got Your Back” button in support of his actions. He feels good about what he did, and resolves to do it again. Others learn from his experience and replicate his behaviour, slowly shifting the culture that makes street harassment normalized and acceptable.

Hollaback! is the only organizational dedicated to ending street harassment internationally. The field of bystander intervention is larger, but Green Dot is one of the more widely adopted because it is based in research and is currently being studied by the CDC for it’s effectiveness. Other programs include MVP (Mentors in Violence Prevention) and UNH “Bringing the Bystander,” but neither are designed to build empathy among bystanders. To date, none of these programs have been brought to a public school environment.

Year I: Program is piloted in 20 schools around the world, and 75% of the students declare after the workshops that they feel like it is "likely" or "very likely" that they will intervene the next time they witness harassment. Students tell over 100 stories of bystander intervention on ihollaback.org.
Year II: Program expands to an additional 20 schools around the world as more site leaders are trained. This year, 80% of the students declare after the workshops that they feel like it is "likely" or "very likely" that they will intervene the next time they witness harassment. Students tell over 100 stories of bystander intervention on ihollaback.org.
Year III: As bystander intervention increases internationally, the number of street harassment stories on Hollaback! begins to plateau.
¿Qué barreras pueden dificultar el éxito de tu proyecto? ¿Cómo planean superarlas?
1. Access to schools. We plan to leverage community partnerships and legislative relationships to gain access to schools and after-school programs.
2. Lack of funding. Our five-prong fundraising plan will supplement this work, in addition to in-kind resources through Green Dot and our technology team.

After launching ihollaback.org, we were struck by the number of rapidly increasing "pink dots" on our homepage - each one representing another incident of harassment. Simply put, we found it depressing. I asked our volunteer Esty, "what could we map that is happy?" She responded, "what about when people stand up for you? That's pretty awesome." We agreed to collect these stories and map them in green dots (because green looks good with pink). I began to ask around for best practices -- and quickly learned that there was already an organization called "Green Dot" that had a similar concept, except instead of mapping they did training and curriculum development. We attended their training, hit it off, and decided to work together. They have spent $20k in staff and travel to date on this collaboration.

To date, Green Dot has provided $20k in services for Hollaback! pro-bono. In Februrary of this year, they came to New York for one week to finalize the details of our partnership, including the curriculum, resources, and co-branded. Hollaback! depends on our community partnerships in all 44 cities that we serve to compliment and strengthen our work.

We need additional funding to expand our capacity and continue to support our robust team of volunteers and site leaders, who collectively provide over $4 million in in-kind services to the organization annually. We are happy to help others with brand strategy, volunteer coordination, individual giving, and on-line organizing.
