We are excited to announce that Tarana Burke will be joining us this year as our keynote speaker. Tarana is an author, an activist, and the founder of the "Me Too" movement. We are beyond thrilled to have her as our keynote speaker this year. Tarana is the perfect keynote for our theme this year, as a black women who started a movement centered on black women who have been impacted by sexual harassment, sexual assault and sexual violence. She also saw her movement become a larger cultural movement and had to navigate how to grow a cultural movement while still making space for centering and lifting up the voices and experiences of black women. She talks extensively about her journey with this in her recent memoir, "Unbound, My Story of Liberation and the Birth of the Me Too Movement."
