Take Back the Night is coming up on Thursday, September 17th. We’re taking some time before the event to look at some of the reasons folks might not want to come to TBTN.
Reasons Not to Come to TBTN #3 – I don’t belong there
Some folks worry that Take Back the Night is only for survivors. Or only for survivors who have told their story. Or only for survivors who speak about their story in a certain way or are in a certain place in their healing journey. Or only for activists.
There is no right or wrong way for a survivor to heal or to act.
Women-identified survivors, friends, and family are welcome to come to Take Back the Night.
Use your voice! Take a stand against victim blaming and to support survivors of sexual violence. Lets let the entire world know that we believe survivors!
Take Back the Night, an annual event organized by SACHA — Sexual Assault Centre (Hamilton & Area) — is a powerful opportunity for all woman-identified folks to actively build connections, assertively reclaim our right to safety, and courageously stand up against violence.
