Fresno State Student Involvement, in partnership with USU Productions, President’s Commission on Human Relations and Equity, ASI, Fraternity and Sorority Life, Title IX and Clery Compliance, Cross Cultural and Gender Center, Student Health and Counseling Center, Women’s Studies Program, and Student Housing, presents a lecture featuring Tarana Burke, founder of the ‘me too.’ Movement and social justice advocate.
This event will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6, in the Satellite Student Union!
This evening of empowerment and advocacy is FREE and exclusive to Fresno State students, staff, and faculty with a physical and valid Fresno State ID. Due to the sensitive nature of the topic, counselors will be present and available to provide counseling services during the event.
Tarana Burke shares the story behind the 2017 Time Person of the Year-winning ‘me too.’ Movement. #MeToo is not just an overnight hashtag sensation; Tarana has dedicated more than 25 years of her life to a movement that was initially created to help young women of color who survived sexual abuse and assault. The movement now inspires solidarity, amplifies the voices of thousands of victims, and puts the focus back on survivors.
