Q & A with Tarana Burke

Tarana Burke is an American activist from The Bronx, New York who started the 'me too.'  movement. In 2006, Burke began using me too to help other women with similar experiences to stand up for themselves.

The simple yet courageous ‘me too.’ movement has emerged as a rallying cry for people everywhere who have survived sexual assault and sexual harassment – and Tarana Burke’s powerful, poignant story as creator of what is now an international movement that supports survivors will move, uplift, and inspire you.

During this virtual Q&A session, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions after a moderated question and answer dialogue.

I was so impressed. The organization behind this event was stellar. Tarana was amazing (of course)! We could have spent so much more time with her!! It would be nice (if possible) to have Donde, Tyvi (or whoever is appropriate, I don't know all the right roles) be interviewed regarding our path forward.
