Resources

Hollaback! HALIFAX offers a supportive space for you to describe your experiences with street harassment, but we understand that these experiences can affect us far beyond the moment they happen, or even the moment we write them down.

Whether you’ve been a target of street harassment, you’ve witnessed it, or you simply want to know more, we want to help. We’re putting together a list of  local resources that we hope will be of use.

See below for services offered within Halifax.

Please email us at halifax@ihollaback.org if you know of another resource that should be included here.
