Event description

Description

This Valentine’s Day spend an evening with Tarana Burke, founder of the #metoo movement. RISD and Brown University are joining together to invite this visionary leader in the spirit of survivor-centered community healing. The Me Too movement, first conceptualized over a decade ago, envisions intersectional survivor-centered solidarity for people of all races, classes, genders and abilities. Tarana Burke, social activist and 25-year veteran of the anti-violence movement, pulls from her decades of experience to help us plot a path forward during this precarious time. Emily Owens, Assistant Professor of History, will join Tarana on stage to explore recent history and discuss how this moment fits in a long history of racialized and sexual violence in our nation and how we can impact change within our communities.
