    March 2023's colorway is inspired by Tarana Burke and her powerful memoir Unbound: My Story of Liberation and the Birth of the Me Too Movement.

    Burke, an organizer and activist focused on Black girls and women, founded the "Me Too" movement in 2006 to help and support young women of color who experienced sexual assault.  Her work is centered around uplifting the survivors in their paths to healing, as well as forming and providing community to those survivors.  "Empowerment through empathy" is the driving force behind all of her activism, which allows these young women to realize they are not alone, and to help them and others speak truth to power.

    Burke's memoir, Unbound, begins with her reaction to the Me Too Movement going viral after high-profile accusations of sexual violence and harassment. At first, it was overwhelming to see something she had created and fostered being taken over by mostly white women. As the Me Too Movement grew (and grew), she knew that the narrative needed to encompass not only the high-profile cases, but those that take place in more ordinary spaces as well.  She continues her work as Senior Director of Girls for Gender Equity and organizes workshops to help improve policies at schools, workplaces, and places of worship, and she continues to help victims not blame themselves for sexual violence.
