NMC's Office of Student Life in collaboration with NMC Voices will be hosting our third Take Back the Night march and rally on April 10th!
Take Back the Night is a worldwide movement to support and empower survivors of sexual assault and to also spread community awareness about the prevailing issue; because every 98 seconds, another person experiences sexual assault.
The event is free and open to both the campus community and general public. Participants will meet between 5 and 5:15pm at NMC's Hagerty Center to rally and march (march beginning at 5:30pm) through Downtown Traverse City.
The march will conclude at the Hagerty Center around 6:30pm, where participants will gather for music, conversation, and most importantly, the speak out. The speak out gives survivors the opportunity to share their voices and experiences with sexual assault in a safe environment. The speak out is also a place for allies to share positive words of encouragement and support. Professional counselors and survivor advocates will be present and available to help maintain the safe and supportive environment.
Questions? Feel free to call NMC Student Life at 231-995-1118 or message NMC Voices on Facebook!
