#MeToo - Finding Power In Our Stories
If you've logged into social media in the past 48 hours or so, you surely have seen #MeToo pop up more than a few times. This grassroots campaign to raise awareness around the prevalence of sexual harassment and assault has been deafening, and for too many, a shock.
Thousands of (mostly) women and men have posted on social media a "#MeToo" to express their shared experience. Some are simply just the hashtag. Others elaborate with details on the assault and aftermath. Some are from celebrities. Most are from the men and women we see every day in our lives. All are powerful moments of finding power through story.
Now, if you're looking for a way to engage with this issue of sexual and gender-based violence, you can: share your own story here, support young people looking for help, or start a peacemaking project that directly addresses this issue.
