#MeToo creator will push button to drop New Year’s Eve ball in Times Square

By Alanna Vagianos,

Someone very special will drop this year’s New Year’s Eve ball in Times Square.

Tarana Burke, who founded the #MeToo movement, will push the ceremonial Waterford Crystal button that will begin the 60-second countdown and release the iconic ball in New York City on Dec. 31.

Burke, a 44-year-old youth organizer who founded Just Be Inc., created the “Me Too” campaign in 2007, long before hashtags even existed.
