Description

Tarana Burke: Founder of the 'me too.' Movement and Social Justice Activist
February 5, 2019 6pm, USU Ballroom

Tarana Burke shares the story behind the genesis of the viral 2017 TIME Person Of The Year-winning ‘me too.’ Movement, and gives strength and healing to those who have experienced sexual trauma or harassment. #MeToo is not just an overnight hashtag sensation; Tarana has dedicated more than 25 years of her life to social justice and to laying the groundwork for a movement that was initially created to help young women of color who survived sexual abuse and assault. The movement now inspires solidarity, amplifies the voices of thousands of victims of sexual abuse, and puts the focus back on survivors. In her upcoming book, Where the Light Enters, Tarana discusses the importance of the ‘me too.’ Movement as well as her personal journey from "victim to survivor to thriver."

Tarana's continued work with the 'me too.' Movement has earned her the honor of being named The Root 100's most influential person of 2018. On stage, she provides words of empowerment that lift up marginalized voices, enables survivors across all races, genders, or classes to know that they are not alone, and creates a place for comfort and healing to those who have experienced trauma.

Co-Sponsors: Cross Cultural Center, Gender Equity Center, Housing, Office of Inclusive Excellence, Title IX Office, USU Live, Dean of Students, Student Health and Counseling Services, Women's Gender and Sexuality Studies
