Social justice activist and found of the Me Too movement will speak at Smith College Wednesday night.
According to Smith College Spokesperson Stacey Schmeidel, Tarana Burke will be speaking at an event to mark the dedication of the Smith Wurtele Center for Leadership.
The center, which was a gift from Smith alum Margaret Wurtele and her late husband Angus, strives to help students realize their leadership potential and discover the leadership that exists in everyday life.
The talk, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. in the John M. Greene Hall, which seats 2,000 people. Smith and Five College students, faculty, and staff will be allowed entry into the hall beginning at 6:20 p.m.
Members of the general public and Smith alum will be admitted at 6:40 p.m.
While tickets are not required for the talk, a current ID is required.
The bottom line is this: we’ve heard case after case after case after case of all kinds survivors of violence: sexual, racial and more. if those people are ever to become whole again, it starts with believing them when they tell us what broke them.
