'The darkest hour can be behind us if we come together,' at the 2018 BE LOUD Breakfast

(En español.) The first time I heard about KCSARC’s BE LOUD Breakfast, I was still in graduate school.

The holiday season often brings about gatherings of family and friends. It can be both joyous and stressful. In the wake of #MeToo and many people sharing their experience of sexual assault and harassment in a public forum, often for the first time, these social events may bring about an added challenge.

Three ways you can turn #MeToo into lasting change for survivors.

Ten years ago, #MeToo was developed by Tarana Burke to empower young women of color who had been sexually assaulted. Relatively few people had heard of the #MeToo movement until two weeks ago when the news about Harvey Weinstein exploded in the media.

By now, we have all read the stories and the texts. We’ve heard famous and not-so-famous women share their experiences of men harassing, abusing, and assaulting them at work, at home, on public transportation, and in every space of their lives.
