#metoo: An evening with Tarana Burke
Open to the public
Tarana Burke is an African American civil rights activist, who In 2006 began using the phrase "Me Too", to raise awareness of the pervasiveness of sexual abuse and assault in society. The phrase has since developed into a broader movement, following the 2017 use of #MeToo as a hashtag following the year’s biggest sexual abuse allegations. Tarana Burke will be joined in conversation by Alisa Bierria, PhD, current University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Gender & Women’s Studies at the University of California, Berkeley
