Cornell University Program Board proudly presents Tarana Burke

Tarana Burke shares the heartbreaking 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. 

The simple yet courageous #metoo hashtag campaign has emerged as a rallying cry for people everywhere who have survived sexual assault and sexual harassment – and Tarana’s powerful, poignant story as creator of what is now an international movement that supports survivors will move, uplift, and inspire you.
