You Can March With Us – Year Two

Standard

TBTN Poster 2017Not sure what it will feel like to be at Take Back the Night? Don’t have an available friend to come with you? You are a kind person who wants to offer a friendly welcome to someone more nervous coming to TBTN?

Last year we created the You Can March With Us table at Take Back the Night.

This year we’re adding to the table to have  ‘You Can March With Us’ buttons.

If you’re into welcoming folks, please pick up a button. Anyone wearing a button is someone who is interested in meeting new TBTN participants who might be coming alone or might be nervous.

You Can March With Us

Standard

TBTN Poster English 2016Thinking about coming to Take Back the Night next Thursday but feeling uncertain or anxious?

Not sure what it will feel like to be at the event? Don’t have an available friend to come with you? You are a kind person who wants to offer a friendly welcome to someone more nervous coming to TBTN?

This year we are going to have a “You Can March With Us” table.

We have people whose specific task it is to make everyone feel welcome and more comfortable in attending the event.

Everyone at some point in their life has felt uneasy in a crowd.  Everyone at some point has felt awkward. That’s normal. But this discomfort can stop people from participating in something awesome such as TBTN.  We don’t want this to be a barrier to anyone.  We love extroverts and gregarious people who shine at group events and we love introverts and shy folk. (We love you too ambiverts – don’t want you to feel left out either.)

Here’s why you may want to visit us at our You Can March With Us table…

  1. You will see someone who is happy you are at TBTN
  2. You can ask questions about event
  3. You will find someone you can march with
  4. Use us as a meet up location with friends who are joining you at TBTN
  5. You are welcome to come to our table if you would like to offer yourself and your friends as buddies to someone looking for a TBTN friend
  6. You want to write a note for our table welcoming people to TBTN

Where can you find the You Can March With Us table?

We’ll be set up beside the SACHA info table very close to Main Street in the City Hall forecourt.
