‘Take Back The Night’ Official Endorser Request Deadline Is Feb. 26
Each year, Syracuse University recognizes and participates in Take Back The Night (TBTN), a global event dedicated to raising awareness about sexual, relationship and domestic violence, and other forms of interpersonal violence. This year, the event is at 7 p.m. (ET) Wednesday, March 31. Before the event, campus community members are encouraged to explore ways to get involved.
“It’s our job not only as members of the Syracuse University campus community but as members of our society to show that we recognize that these issues exist and that we are actively trying to put a stop to it,” says Sierra Rose St. Louis ’21, co-chair of the Spring 2021 Take Back The Night planning committee. “If you pledge to take part in Take Back The Night, you are showing those around you how important stopping sexual violence is. By taking this pledge, posting a video or photo, or telling other people about it, you can help everyone, not just survivors, live in a safer world. We all need to do our part.”
