Tarana Burke Biography

Tarana Burke is best known for founding the 'me too' Movement and has dedicated her life to social justice work and giving strength to those who experienced sexual trauma or harassment. Honored as one of The Silence Breakers named TIME's 2017 Person of the Year and named to TIME's "100 Most Influential People of 2018. Years before 'me too' became a viral hashtag, Burke founded Just Be Inc., a non-profit that helps victims.

The simple yet courageous #metoo hashtag campaign has generated over 13 million Facebook posts and Tweets, emerging as a rallying cry for people everywhere who have survived sexual assault and sexual harassment. Burke’s powerful, poignant story as creator of what is now an international movement that supports survivors will move, uplift, and inspire you.

"#metoo" is not just an overnight hashtag sensation; Burke has dedicated more than 25 years of her life to social justice and to laying the groundwork for 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 thousands of victims of sexual abuse, and puts the focus back on survivors.

A sexual assault survivor herself, Burke is now Executive Director of the 'me too' organization. On stage, Burke provides insight into the current state of affairs and outpouring of sexual assault and harassment allegations, addresses pressing issues of respect, dignity and power dynamics in workplaces and politics, and shines a light on the stories of survivors and voices that continue to be marginalized schools.
