If there’s one thing that 2017 has proved to us, it’s that black women know how to get things to done. And the Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment seem to agree. Sixty seconds before the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve this year, #MeToo founder Tarana Burke will push the Waterford crystal button that signals the ball drop in New York’s Times Square.

Burke announced the news on her Twitter account on Monday.

Burke’s sexual harassment-focused “Me Too” campaign, was founded in 2007, and has since been catapulted into the national spotlight to be named Time Magazine’s 2017 Person of the Year.
