On Saturday 5th March we will be holding a march to support local community activism to tackle street harassment. In partnership with the local police and the Take Back the Streets community group I'm asking residents to join us at 12.15pm at the Bell Corner (the corner of Hoe Street and Forest Road) to march along Hoe Street to raise awareness of this work and join the call to make all of Walthamstow's streets safe for everyone. We are currently finalising details of this march and would welcome support through volunteer stewards. If you can help steward please email

Then at 1.30pm we will be holding a ‘Generation to Generation: Feminist Bootcamp’ as part of seeking to encourage women to take up leadership positions. This is a women’s only event and we will be joined by a variety of speakers including Leyla Hussain, Charlene White, Jack Monroe, Ava Vidal, Reni Eddo-Lodge and many more. There will also be a special children's activity room at this event run by Walthamstow Toy Library and the Waltham Forest NCT, so if you would like to come and have young children please do let us know. Jack Monroe will be judging a cake competition (both vegan and non vegan entries welcome) with a Jack cake as the prize for the winner. ImageE17 and the local women's history project will also be on hand to capture the views and stories of participants.
