Tarana Burke

When: Tue., Feb. 6, 7 p.m. 2018

Tarana Burke, senior director of program at the Brooklyn-based Girls for Gender Equity, has spent a quarter-century advocating for social justice and for young women of color who have experienced sexual abuse and assault. But she is best known as founder of the #MeToo movement, a key factor in our culture’s current drive to give long-overdue attention to sexual abuse and misconduct. Tonight, nonprofit news outfit PublicSource hosts Burke for a talk at Calvary Episcopal Church, in Shadyside. Proceeds benefit PublicSource; scholarships are available for those who cannot afford admission. -Bill O'Driscoll

Price: $8-40 (private reception: $100)
