Voices in Action was founded by some of the first women to speak out against Harvey Weinstein in the fall of 2017, helping to ignite Tarana Burke’s #MeToo movement into its current state. We have been hard at work this past year. We have gotten to know top nonprofits that provide help to victims of sexual assault, we have supported the largest slate of sexual harassment bills in the country and we have built solid relationships with activist documentarians, female entrepreneurs and our guild, SAG-AFTRA. We have given one on one support for victims who didn’t know where else to turn and we have developed trusted relationships with other outspoken survivors, both men and women.
We believe solutions towards preventing sexual harassment and assault are to be found with survivors. Over this past year we have had many constructive, enlightening conversations regarding safety and equality in our industry with fellow survivors and now we are taking action.
