Devon is majoring in Psychology and minoring in Women’s & Gender Studies at Clark University and looks forward to making the world we live in safe and fun for everyone, regardless of their features, clothing, or location.

Jane first heard about Hollaback! from the Civil Liberties and Public Policy: From Abortion Rights to Social Justice Conference at Hampshire College and was empowered to learn about a way to directly combat street harassment. She is excited to bring the movement to her hometown with her passionate team members and create a community dedicated to making each person feel safe, confident, and free to be themselves when they leave the house. Jane is a student at Clark University pursuing a double-major in Psychology and Race, Class, and Gender Studies with a drive for social justice and activism. We don’t have to take it– we can hollaback!

Britni finds the empowerment aspect of speaking up and fighting back to be quite in line with her naturally feisty disposition and is happy to have the chance to bring the Hollaback! movement to her community. Britni has a Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling but prefers doing Social Work. She is a feminist, activist, former pessimist, dopeless hopefiend, spiritual gangster, and all around super rad chick. She is a firm believer that there is no such thing as too many sequins and that you can never be overdressed.

Kate’s interest in the Hollaback! movement grew from her frustration with the persistent street harassment she faces as a runner. Her background in International Affairs and Anthropology fuels her belief that addressing root causes – such as the pervasive belief that catcalling is a socially acceptable, non-threatening behavior – is a crucial step in helping everyone feel safer on our streets. Operations Professional by day, Designer by night, Rider of Bicycles in Stilettos – Kate thrives on challenging expectations and keeping people on their toes, and is excited to join forces to bring the Hollaback! movement to Boston.
