National CallsThe ‘me too. Movement has been hard at work, strategizing and building an infrastructure that supports our mission to end rape culture and put survivors front and center of community healing and justice. We are excited to introduce ourselves as an organization, and answer those who said “me too… now what?” On the 2nd anniversary of #MeToo going viral, we are focusing on survivors who are ready to see a world free of sexual violence. Join us for a series of national calls where we’ll present our framework, talk about what presidential candidates need to do to earn our vote and return to center with a conversation about healing and survival for Black femmes. You can now listen to the recordings of each call at the RSVP links below!

#MeTooVoter Sexual violence is a national problem that deserves a national response. Following Tuesday’s democratic debate, we’ll be discussing how presidential candidates did (or didn’t) address sexual violence. National movement leaders Tarana Burke (‘me too.’), Monica Ramirez (Justice for Migrant Women), Ai-jen Poo (National Domestic Workers Alliance), and Fatima Goss Graves (National Women’s Law Center) will talk about #metoovoter and the work we have to do to hold this nation’s leaders accountable in demonstrating their commitment to survivors.

Black Femmes in Focus
#MeTooBlackFemmes Black women have the highest turn-out rate at the polls. They also have the highest rates of sexual assault. On this call, Tarana Burke, Nia Robinson (Planned Parenthood Federation of America), therapist Shesheena Bray, D’atra “Dee Dee” Jackson (BYP 100), and Tashmica Torok (Firecracker Foundation) will discuss what it means to hold Black femme identities as survivors on a healing journey in a country that benefits from our existence but doesn’t prioritize our wellness.
