Resources Related to #MeToo and Sexual Violence

In 2006, Tarana Burke founded the #metoo movement to help survivors of sexual violence, particularly young women of color from low wealth communities, find pathways to healing. Using the idea of “empowerment through empathy,” the #metoo movement was ultimately created to ensure survivors know they're not alone in their journey. ~Metoo MvMt
