This month, we'll discuss the #metoo movement from a Humanist perspective. Paul and Carol will serve as co-hosts for our conversation.
From the official me too movement website (https://metoomvmt.org/):
The me too movement was founded in 2006 to help survivors of sexual violence, particularly young women of color from low-wealth communities, find pathways to healing. Our vision from the beginning was to address both the dearth in resources for survivors of sexual violence and to build a community of advocates, driven by survivors, who will be at the forefront of creating solutions to interrupt sexual violence in their communities.
The me too movement has built a community of survivors from all walks of life. By bringing vital conversations about sexual violence into the mainstream, we’re helping to de-stigmatize survivors by highlighting the breadth and impact sexual violence has on thousands of women, and we’re helping those who need it to find entry points to healing. Ultimately, with survivors at the forefront of this movement, we’re aiding the fight to end sexual violence. We want to uplift radical community healing as a social justice issue and are committed to disrupting all systems that allow sexual violence to flourish.
Parking: The Community Parking Deck at Walnut & South 6th Streets is adjacent to the event location.
