“Me, Too” Movement Founder Brings Anti-sexual Violence Tour to ASU

WHEN: Friday (April 12) at 1 p.m.

WHERE: ASU’s Abernathy College of Education auditorium (on Harris Way, first bld. on right from Carter Hill gateway).

The “me, too” movement” pioneer and founder, Tarana Burke, is bringing her HBCU “me, too” anti-sexual violence tour to Alabama State University with a special “Fireside Chat” event on Friday (April 12) at 1 p.m. at ASU’s Ralph D. Abernathy College of Education auditorium, which is in the back of the building.

The “Fireside Chat” by Burke promotes how to recognize, combat, and report sexual assault, and addresses where and how all communities fit in to the “me, too” movement. It is also timely because this is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

The “Fireside Chat” event with Burke is free and open to the public. 

Burke will be joined at ASU by Yaba Blay, activist and founder of the #ProfessionalBlackGirl web series, and is a part of Burke’s HBCU tour.
