Special Event Presented by UCI Office of Inclusive Excellence Monday, April 22, 2019
Activist exemplar Tarana Burke shares the important story behind the genesis of the “me too.” movement and its next steps forward. Ms. Burke’s powerful, poignant story as creator of what is now an international movement supports survivors and will move, uplift and inspire you. This facilitated conversation includes audience questions.
Tarana Burke was born on September 12, 1973 in The Bronx, NY. She is an African-American civil rights activist. She’s most well-known as the founder of the “me too.” movement in 2016, which has blossomed into a worldwide campaign to raise awareness about sexual harassment, abuse and assault in society. In 2017, Burke and other influential female activists were named “the silence breakers” by Time magazine. She currently serves as a senior director at the Girls for Gender Equity in Brooklyn.
