Get to Know Tarana Burke, African-American Civil Rights Activist & Founder of “me too.” | The 2019 MAKERS Conference

Tarana Burke founded the “Me Too” campaign back in 2006, as a way to stand in solidarity with her fellow survivors of sexual assault, particularly black women and girls. When Alyssa Milano used the #MeToo hashtag following news of the Harvey Weinstein scandal in 2017, she quickly found out that it had all started with Burke, who has since been the face of the powerful movement.
