Vote for phone app & make it easier to report street harassers

Cross-posted from HollaBack NYC:

Thanks to the 3,800 of you who voted for Hollaback 2.0, we made it to the second round of the Knight News Foundation. Now we are asking you to vote again.

If you want to stop worrying if you could run in those heels if you needed to, vote again.

If you want to slap the next man who tells you to “smile,” vote again.

If your head scarf, puffy coat, and winter boats still aren’t making you harassment-free, vote again.

Each story you submit is read by 1,000 people: now that’s leadership. Your stories, your vision, and your commitment got us here. Now it’s time to step up our game and build a platform that uses today’s technology to make even easier to Hollaback. We’ve never been able to do it without you, so we’re not going to try now. Vote again.

It’s your future. Make it harassment-free.

    Thanks Holly! And to those folks having trouble with it, click the fifth star. If your vote was recorded the number of votes will change.

    In solidarity,
    Emily
