“I was ONCE a victim of abuse with two children (girls) for ten years. **NO MORE** I would march [at Take Back the Night] everyday if possible to stop the violence against women. So there will be freedom and peace for my girls, all girls, and myself!!!!” – Take Back the Night participant
Why do you march at Take Back the Night? Let us know in the comments or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org!
Everyday we’re featuring one thought from past Take Back the Night participants.
Take Back the Night, an annual event organized by SACHA — Sexual Assault Centre (Hamilton & Area) — is a powerful opportunity for all woman-identified individuals to actively build connections, assertively reclaim our right to safety, and courageously stand up against sexual violence.
This year’s event will include puppets, information tables, Take Back the Night t-shirts and buttons, drumming, Zumba, sign making, music, some surprises and, of course, a loud and empowered march! See you there!
