Tarana will speak about the origins of the “me too” movement and the premise it is built on—that the power of empathy is key to a survivor’s healing. Ms. Burke will speak candidly about why sexual violence is so rampant in our culture and will share concrete ways it can be interrupted by every one of us. Her talk is a call to action that is meant to inspire and motivate all who are affected by sexual violence—which is everyone. Her remarks will be followed by an audience Q and A.
