Tarana Burke at Sac State University Union Ballroom
Thursday, February 7, 7:30pm, University Union Ballroom, no cover
In one of the most visible and viral instances of social change in the United States, the 2017 #MeToo movement gave visibility and change to survivors of sexual assault. It set the stage for hundreds of powerful men publicly accused of sexual misconduct to lose their jobs. Prior to the 2017 upheaval, Tarana Burke used the phrase “me too” working with young women of color who were survivors of sexual abuse and assault. Continuing to be a force on the forefront of the issue, Burke works as an advocate for marginalized people and a leader in social change. Come hear her speak at Sacramento State. 6000 J Street, theuniversityunion.com/unique/event/tarana-burke.
