The End Of Sexual Violence Begins With This Next Act
In 2006, the ‘me too.’ Movement was founded by survivor and activist Tarana Burke. In those early years, we developed our vision to bring resources, support, and pathways to healing where none existed before. And we got to work building a community of advocates determined to interrupt sexual violence wherever it happens.
In 2017, #metoo went viral and woke up the world to the magnitude of the problem of sexual violence. What had begun as local grassroots work had now become a global movement – seemingly overnight. Within a six-month span, our message reached a global community of survivors. suddenly there were millions of people from all walks of life saying “me too”. And they needed our help.
Since then, one of the most common questions we get asked is “what’s next?” Our answer: “you’re next.”
Whether you are a survivor, an activist or an ally, you can be part of the change that needs to happen to overcome systems that enable sexual violence around the world.
To help make this work accessible to all, we’ve created Act Too: a crowd-sourced immutable utility that enables anyone, anywhere to get active in the fight to end sexual violence.
