Take Back the Night 2018 is a collaboration of campus and community members, uniting to take a stand against violence. Together, we can raise awareness about attitudes and policies that perpetuate violence, listen to and stand in solidarity with those who have been impacted by sexual violence, and demand an end to interpersonal violence. This year’s Survivor Speak-Out, Rally for Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women, Take Back the Night March, and Celebration provide us the opportunity to support one another, share our stories, and raise our collective voices against violence. All events are FREE and everyone is welcome.
