Take Back the Night 2018

Thursday 3/29 6:00-7:00pm Curry Student Center Indoor Quad

Take Back the Night is an international tradition focused on eliminating sexual violence. The event provides an opportunity for the community to come together to acknowledge the ongoing issue of sexual violence as well as a broader culture that minimizes, normalizes, and silences it.  This is a night for survivors to make their stories heard.  We want all survivors to know that they are not alone.  We invite allies to actively listen and learn in order to create a culture that better supports all survivors. All are welcome at the event.
