Break the Silence Speaker Series: Me Too Movement Founder Tarana Burke

Renaissance Asheville Hotel

Thursday March 14th 2019 5:00 pm –  8:00 pm

Symmetry Financial Group, AdventHealth and Native Kitchen present a very special evening to benefit Our VOICE, Inc. Tarana Burke started a revolution in 2006 when she first used the phrase Me Too in reference to her own sexual assault. More than 10 years later the Me Too Movement transformed into the viral #MeToo phenomenon. Tarana was named a 2017 Time Magazine Person of the Year for her role in breaking the silence around sexual violence. Tarana’s message is clear: together we are creating a movement that is actively shaping and changing our cultural norms now and for future generations to come.
