Tarana speaks about the origins of the ‘me too.’ Movement and the premise - that the power of empathy is key to survivor’s healing - that it is built on. She talks candidly about why sexual violence is so rampant in our culture and talks about concrete ways that every day citizens can interrupt it. Her talk is a call to action that is meant to inspire and motivate all who are affected by sexual violence- which is everyone.
