Tarana Burke’s Birthday

by go Inspo | 2 months ago

Some of you may not recognize the name, but we can assure you that you know about the MeToo movement that she started.

It’s not often that people get credit where credit is due and in many cases, she may still not get enough credit.

For a great interview explaining what the MeToo Movement is all about, watch her speak with Trevor Noah below:

So today, as she celebrates her birthday, her only ask is to continue the momentum of the movement as the conversation is still extremely important.  See below:

Today is my birthday. I wanted to write a long, introspective piece about how profound this year has been, how I stayed the course even when I didn’t believe it would be fruitful, and how the beauty, wisdom and strength from being in community with folks makes life worth living…all of that is true. But here is what I really want to say more. Thank you. You all have shown up for me in unimaginable ways. And more importantly you have shown up for yourselves and for each other. That’s what this work is all about. We are the movement. #metoo wouldn’t mean anything if nobody said it or used it. Today, I am celebrating by asking you to help us keep building. You can donate to the @metoomvmt fund and help us make sure that funding reaches the communities most impacted by sexual violence. The link is in my bio. With appreciation, Tarana
