In this presentation, Jasleen Kaur hopes to explore the questions “What would it take for the #metoo movement to happen in the Sikh community? What could our #metoo movement look like? And what are the unique challenges our community must overcome in order to get there?" 

In 2006, Tarana Burke founded the me too. movement to help survivors of sexual violence, particularly young women of color from low-income communities find the language to talk about their experiences, build systems of support, start conversations, and put themselves on pathways of healing. October 2017 saw #MeToo grow into an international movement, after going viral on social media as a hashtag used to break the silence that empowers perpetrators and to illustrate the prevalence of sexual assault, harassment, and gender-based violence around the world. In this presentation, Jasleen hopes to explore the questions “What would it take for the #metoo movement to happen in the Sikh community? What could our #metoo movement look like? And what are the unique challenges our community must overcome in order to get there?"
