Program Director

me too. International

Organizational Summary

The ‘me too.’ Movement was founded in 2006 to help survivors of sexual violence find pathways to healing. Our vision is 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. Because of the viral #metoo hashtag, a vital conversation about sexual violence has been thrust into the national dialogue.
