Right to Be
Right To Be (fka Hollaback!) is a nonprofit organisation since 2010. It began as a blog to collect stories of street harassment and now has become part of an international movement. Right To Be kept on documenting stories, but also began to do so much more. It has created the Bystander Intervention Trainings to teach people how to stop harassment, with a set of simple and safe tactics we call the 5Ds. Every day, they train hundreds of people to respond to, intervene in, and heal from harassment. They hold a space for people experiencing harassment to share their stories for affirmation and support and we prepare new leaders to create workplaces, schools, and communities around the world that are filled with humanity.
The HeartMob platform that Right To Be has created is a platform where people facing online harassment can ask for exactly the kind of support they need, and get it when they need it, from vetted bystanders with the tools and resources to help.
Right To Be grew from addressing public street harassment… to ending harassment in all its forms.
