Reason #9 Not to Come to TBTN – I’m Worried About Being Triggered

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 that might keep folks from coming out to TBTN.

Reason #9 – I’m worried about being triggered during the event

There’s lots of energy at Take Back the Night. Being surrounded by folks who care about ending sexual violence, taking up space, dancing together in the streets, being a part of something so big and public can be really powerful.

Take Back the Night can include emotions like joy, happiness, fear, sadness, excitement. All of these are normal responses.

If you need support at the event, there’s supportive listeners at the SACHA table who are ready to help. Also, SACHA’s 24 Hour Support Line – 905.525.4162 – is available before, during and after TBTN. Folks are ready to chat about stuff like how it feels to attend a march to end sexual violence.
