‘Until all of us have made it none of us have made it.’ – Rosemary Brown
Take Back the Night, an annual event organized by SACHA, is a powerful opportunity for survivors and their supporters to actively build connections, assertively reclaim our right to safety, and courageously stand up against violence.
TBTN centers the experiences of women and gender non-conforming folks. We invite men to cheer on the march from Gore Park.
This year’s event will include giant puppets, community tables, drumming, sign making, music, pre-march stretching & warm-ups, some surprises and, of course, a loud and empowered march!
Where: Hamilton City Hall – 71 Main Street West, Hamilton ON
6:00pm – We Gather

We will have both an HSR and a DARTS buses following the march for folks who are not able to march.
If you are not able to march the entire route there is a short cut back to City Hall at Summers Lane near the Hamilton Convention Centre. There will be a TBTN marshal waiting there to walk with folks back to City Hall.
