Take Back the Night will be held at the University of Minnesota, Morris tonight.
The evening begins with a speak-out at 7 p.m. in the Black Box Theatre in the Humanities Fine Arts (HFA) building.
A silent, candle-lit march in support of survivors, sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking will follow the speak-out as a symbol of participants' common decision to stand against rape and abuse and to "take back the night." The march begins outside of HFA. Participants will make their way to 7th Street, down 7th Street, down California Avenue, and back to campus on 4th Street.
Take Back the Night is an annual event on college campuses and within communities around the United States. Take Back the Night is an event free from sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking. We invite you to become part of the solution, part of the end to violence in relationships. The speak-out is a time during which survivors, friends, family, and allies can come together to tell their stories, their experiences, and express their support for those who have endured through hard trials, alone in their pain. Take Back the Night is a time to no longer endure the abuse alone or in fear.
