me too. International Announces Board of Directors

Almost four years after #MeToo went viral, leading activists and thinkers will play a vital role in supporting the direction of the movement towards a world free of sexual violence.

New York, NY  – Today, me too. International announced its expanded Board of Directors, who will help further its mission to interrupt sexual violence and rape culture through survivor-led action. Joining the board will be award-winning organizer and co-founder of Black Voters Matter Fund LaTosha Brown, Editor in Chief of InStyle Magazine Laura Brown, executive vice president and president of Levi Strauss & Co. and bestselling author Jen Sey, former NFL player and VP of Inclusion for Product at Netflix Wade Davis, scholar-activist, public speaker, and cultural consultant Dr. Yaba Blay, Hughes-Rogers Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University Imani Perry, and Deputy Finance Director for Administration, Development and Training for the City of Philadelphia Elizabeth Hanley.

As the four year anniversary of #MeToo approaches, the hashtag that forced into mainstream conversation the spectrum of rape culture that fosters sexual violence, institutions still face a reckoning to create accountability and support for survivors. Recent instances such as the resignation of Governor Andrew Cuomo, the trial of R. Kelly, and reports of sexual misconduct within the UN demonstrate that while abuses continue, a demand for accountability and change continues to grow.

“As a survivor, it is important for me to serve as a member of the board not only because it provides me an opportunity to lend my voice and my perspective to building and operationalizing the mission of the organization,” said Dr. Yaba Blay, scholar-activist, public speaker, and cultural consultant, “I appreciate not only the opportunity, but the responsibility and challenge of learning how all the behind-the-scenes “moving parts” must work in order for me too. to accomplish our goals.”

me too. International works to center, empower, and support survivors, developing new programs geared towards supporting survivors along their healing journeys. In addition, ‘me too.’ conducts survivor leadership training, online healing series, public convenings of healing practitioners, and culture shifting narrative campaigns that center survivors and their needs. The Board of Directors will play a key role in determining what the movement organization will look like moving forward.

International, “In a moment where we have seen encouraging instances of accountability, but major challenges ahead, we are confident this team will help us build a stronger, more resilient movement that centers survivors in everything we do.”
