26 PRESIDENT’S DISTINGUISHED LECTURE SERIES 2019–20120 Founder of the #MeToo Movement and Social Justice Activist TARANABURKE “One of the most visible and viral instances of social change in the United States.” —Sacramento News and Review Tarana Burke originally coined the phrase “me too” while working at Just Be Inc., a nonprofit she founded in 2003 that focused on the overall well-being of young women of color. Then in 2017 in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein expose in The New York Times the #MeToo Movement was born. About the movement Burke said, “On one side, it’s a bold declarative statement that ‘I’m not ashamed’ and ‘I’m not alone.’ On the other side, it’s a statement from survivor to survivor that says, ‘I see you, I hear you, I understand you, and I’m here for you or I get it.’” TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29 7:30 PM | LAXSON AUDITORIUM $25ADULT|$23SENIOR| FREEYOUTH& CHICO STATESTUDENT Office of the Provost A university campus is a place of discovery where learners, young and old and from all walks of life, come to expand their knowledge of the world and form their own opinions.
