POSITIVE ACTIVISM AT WORK
Voices in Action was founded by some of the first women to speak out against Harvey Weinstein in the fall of 2017, helping to propel Tarana Burke’s #MeToo movement into national spotlight. We have been hard at work this past year seeking to find solutions to heal our industry. We have mentored with a leading sexual violence nonprofit Executive Director, we have built solid relationships with activist documentarians, female entrepreneurs and CEO’s. We have given one-on-one support to victims who didn’t know where else to turn and we have developed trusted relationships with other survivors, of all genders.
We believe solutions towards preventing sexual harassment and assault are found by listening to survivors. Over this past year, we have had many constructive, painfully enlightening conversations with fellow survivors regarding the lack of safety and equality in our industry and now is the time to implement actionable and effective steps that lead to concrete change.
