“It’s exhilarating to know that such a powerful voice is finally breaking through. Tarana will continue to do this work, but the stage will be bigger and the microphone turned all the way up.” Time 100

Tarana Burke is a social justice activist, senior director at Girls for Gender Equity and original founder of the ‘me too.’ movement. Having dedicated more than 25 years to social justice work, she created the ‘me too.’ campaign at her youth organization, Just Be, in 2006 to help young women of color who had survived sexual abuse and assault. A survivor herself, Burke has been working under the banner of #metoo since actress Alyssa Milano amplified the phrase in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal. She is one of the silence breakers Time magazine named 2017 Person of the Year and received the 2018 Ridenhour Prize for Courage.
