from Professional Troublemaker | Published 2/16/2021

This week on Professional Troublemaker, Luvvie is in conversation with author, speaker, activist and founder of the Me Too movement, Tarana Burke. For more than 25 years, Tarana has worked at the intersection of sexual violence and racial justice. Fueled by commitments to interrupt sexual violence and other systemic inequalities disproportionately impacting marginalized people, particularly Black women and girls, Tarana has created and led various campaigns focused on increasing access to resources and support for impacted communities, including the ‘me too’ movement, which to date has galvanized millions of survivors and allies around the world.
