Tarana Burke

“Me Too is a movement, not a moment”

 

Our TED talk for this Saturday is by Tarana Burke, entitled, “Me Too is a movement, not a moment.”  In 2006, Tarana was consumed by a desire to do something about the sexual violence she saw in her community. She took out a piece of paper, wrote "Me Too" across the top and laid out an action plan for a movement centered on the power of empathy between survivors.  More than a decade later, she reflects on what has since become a global movement -- and makes a powerful call to dismantle the power and privilege that are building blocks of sexual violence. "We owe future generations nothing less than a world free of sexual violence," she says. "I believe we can build that world."

This talk came out in November 2018, and has had over one million views, a number most speakers would hope to have in a year.  We hope you will join us for an excellent talk by Tarana.

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, and the TED talks feature experts in a variety of fields who present unique ways of looking at their respective fields of expertise.

 

Everyone is welcome to these free sessions.

 

A discussion will take place after the lecture.
