Tuesday, May 1, 7:00-9:00pm
In this performance, open to women, men, and non-binary, we invite those who wish to share how the #MeToo movement is affecting you personally, at home and at work. Are you speaking up more? More aware of your own and other’s actions? What ways can we all make it a safer world for everyone?
While it is critical that people are speaking up about abuses, breaking through silence and shame, in this event we will not share stories of trauma, but focus on how people are claiming their power and supporting others to claim their power.
For those less familiar with the #MeToo movement, women around the world began to speak to speak up in social media about pervasive sexual harassment, especially in the workplace. Over time many have being speaking up about harassment (including men, LGBTQ) and challenging the cultural norms of what behaviors are acceptable.
True Story will create a space to hear and creatively honor different people’s experiences. It’s fine to just come and witness.
