During Car Free Day on Commercial Drive, Vancouver Hollaback hosted its first official event — a chalk walk!
Despite a rare Vancouver thunderstorm and a strange encounter with a bag-pipe playing goat on stilts, we managed to have some encouraging dialogue with interested folks. At least 15 new people know about Hollaback! and that makes us all kinds of giddy.
We feel proud and honoured to be part of this important conversation on street harassment and safe spaces. Thanks to everyone who joined us to chalk and chat today. None of this can happen without you; we’re grateful!
