This Month at Wake Forest

Featured Event:

Sept. 25 – ‘me too.’ Movement: An Evening with Tarana Burke – 6 – 7:30 p.m., Wait Chapel

Tarana Burke shares the story behind the genesis of the viral 2017 TIME Person Of The Year-winning ‘me too.’ movement, and gives strength and healing to those who have experienced sexual trauma or harassment.

The simple yet courageous #metoo hashtag campaign has emerged as a rallying cry for people everywhere who have survived sexual assault and sexual harassment — and Tarana’s powerful, poignant story as creator of what is now an international movement that supports survivors will move, uplift, and inspire you.

This event is free and open to the public, but a ticket is required. Doors open at 5:15. For ticketing, please visit: metoo-wfu.eventbrite.com
