Reason #6 Not to Come to TBTN – No One to Go With

Standard

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.

Reason #6 – I don’t have anyone to go with

That’s normal. Sometimes survivors or folks who are passionate about changing our communities can feel isolated. It can be hard to come to events by yourself.

Please know that everyone who comes to the event also cares about ending sexual violence.

You can pop by a solidarity event, like SACHA’s sign making party, or the Women’s Centre’s pizza party, to meet cool folks and to have someone to walk over the event with.

——–

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.
