Take Back the Night—Four Ways to Show Your Support
The annual Take Back the Night rally, march and speak-out are scheduled for Wednesday, March 29, at Hendricks Chapel beginning at 7 p.m.
Take Back the Night aims to raise awareness about sexual and relationship violence and empower our community to take a stance against interpersonal violence. It is an opportunity for our campus community to come together to demonstrate our commitment to ending sexual and relationship violence and supporting victims and survivors.
There are four ways to get involved in this year’s event and show support:
- Attend Take Back the Night on Wednesday, March 29, at 7 p.m. in Hendricks Chapel.
- Organizations, groups and departments can officially endorse Take Back the Night 2017 by 1.) completing the pledge poster request form on the Office of Health Promotion website, and 2.) submitting a photo of their signed pledge poster to email@example.com. Those who send their photo by March 10, will be recognized on the Take Back the Night t-shirts, in a Daily Orange ad and in the event program.
- Organizations, groups and departments can create a Hands Against Violence banner, pledging not to use their hands to harm others. You can request supplies for the banner on the pledge poster request form on the Office of Health Promotion website. Completed banners will be hung at Take Back the Night.
- Purchase a Take Back the Night 2017 t-shirt. These shirts can be pre-ordered at the Schine Box Office until March 10. Shirts are $10 each, or $8 each if purchased in quantities of 30 or more. Profits from these sales will be donated to Vera House Inc., a local organization that works toward ending domestic and sexual violence.
