Take Back The Night is an event held by organizations dedicated to helping women achieve safety and empowerment. However, this night is not for women only. We encourage men, women, and children of all ages to attend. Violence is a dark part of society that affects us all. Take Back The Night seeks to end sexual violence in all of its forms including sexual assault, sexual abuse, dating violence, and domestic violence. These events empower survivors (men, women and children) in the healing process and reminds us all of our responsibility in bringing about change. Take Back The Night’s goal is to create safe communities, raise awareness, and take back our streets.Please come and join us. One voice becoming many can make our homes and streets safe again. Together we can make a difference.
