Who we are and what drives us
Fairspace is based in the Netherlands. We’re part of an international network of grassroots organizations and are powered by a local passionate team, made up of trainers, scholars, policy advisors, and creatives.
Fairspace builds safe, inclusive public spaces. Our vision is for a society in which everyone in the Netherlands, regardless of sex, race, gender or gender expression, feels safe moving through public spaces.
Join Fairspace and help us change the way people experience public space in the Netherlands!
We empower our team to design their own actions. That means if you have an idea, a plan and passion to get it started, we make it happen. Fairspace is looking for people who are passionate about using their skills and background to fight public injustice and to make our streets safer. We’re all about thinking outside of the box and working together for real impact.
A global movement against street harassment
Fairspace grew out of Hollaback!, a worldwide movement that uses education and technology to achieve gender justice in public spaces.
As of November 2017, Hollaback! Nederland became part of Stichting Fairspace. Creating our new home under the umbrella of Fairspace is not only exciting – it makes our home in the Netherlands official and opens us up to greater partnership and funding opportunities.
