Take Back the Night is a domestic violence and sexual assault awareness event that provides insight into the experiences of those affected by gender-based violence and allow allies to stand in support of the movement to end it. The event on Tuesday, Nov. 15, begins at 7:30 p.m. on the Campus Green by the Student Center. It includes a dynamic speak out by those engaged in the movement and a march around the campus to symbolize a restoration of power to survivors, which often takes place in metaphoric and actual darkness.

The event supports victims and survivors of sexual assault and rape, giving them and those who support them an outlet to share their stories as well as receive support. This event is open to all students and individuals who have been affected by sexual assault, want to know more about preventing assaults and those who wish to support victims and survivors.

Take Back the Night is organized by students in SOCY 5670/6670 in collaboration with the Women’s Center.
