Tarana Burke has dedicated her life to racial justice, gender equity, bodily autonomy, anti-violence, empathy, and power building for those who have experienced sexual trauma or harassment. Named TIME‘s Person of the Year (2017), Time’s 100 Most Influential People (2018), The Sydney Peace Prize (2019), and USA Today’s Women of the Decade in 2020, Tarana will have a candid conversation with Jannette Taylor, President & CEO of the WCA, about her work – past, present, and future.
Tarana has dedicated more than 25 years of her life to social justice and to laying the groundwork to help young women, especially women of color, who have survived sexual abuse and assault. During this conversation, Tarana will address the outpouring of sexual assault and harassment allegations, pressing issues of respect, dignity, and power dynamics in schools, workplaces, and politics and shine a light on the stories of survivors and voices that continue to be marginalized.
This event is critical to keeping the conversation going. The WCA believes survivors and walks alongside those who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and stalking. Each experience is unique, and the WCA’s team of trained counselors and experts are available to help support in the healing process. Proceeds from the event will benefit the work of Women’s Center for Advancement (WCA).
