Survivors of sexual harassment, sexual assault and sexual abuse will join in a #MeToo march and rally Sunday in Hollywood, organizers said.
The demonstration begins at 10 a.m. at Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, with a march to the CNN Building at 6430 Sunset Boulevard, where a press conference will be held at noon.
Participants will then march back to Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue for a rally scheduled for 1 to 3 p.m.
“For every Harvey Weinstein, there’s a hundred more men in the neighborhood who are doing the exact same thing,” #MeToo founder Tarana Burke said. “The conversation around harassment in Hollywood will broaden to include other industries if we force it to.”
Burke co-founded an organization called Just Be Inc. in the aftermath of her own assault to help women talk about sexual assault, according to press materials.
Other scheduled speakers include actress Frances Fisher, a national board member of SAG-AFTRA; Chelsea Byers of the Campaign to End the Statute of Limitations on Rape and Sexual Assault; and actress Estefania Rebellon, who will conduct the ceremony.
