Take Back the Night
Take Back the Night is an annual vigil, march and speakout that brings survivors, supporters and the
community together to shatter the silence around sexual and interpersonal violence. The event is a
supportive, empowering and nonjudgmental space for all survivors and survivor allies. Please feel free
to bring personal stories or poetry about sexual or relationship violence to share in an open mic style.
The speakout empowers survivors by giving a space to share stories and break the silence. After the
event, participants are invited to the Resource Center for Gender and Sexuality for snacks and hot
drinks, and to discuss, process and get support in a safe environment.
