Rally, March and Support Take Back The Night 2022
As a global movement strengthening community, courage, education and support, Take Back The Night is more than a singular event. It’s a time to further highlight the ongoing work throughout the year dedicated to raising awareness about sexual, relationship and domestic violence, and other forms of interpersonal violence.
The Take Back The Night Planning Committee and the Barnes Center at The Arch invite the campus community to explore a number of ways to be involved to work towards ending interpersonal violence and cultivating a foundation of support.
Planning Committee Chair Emily Graham Spring ’22 encourages others not only to participate in events but challenges them to reflect and think about what a healthy relationship means to them. “TBTN shows that the courage to speak up and speak out is truly impactful. It shows people that they are not alone when dealing with interpersonal violence,” she says.
Here’s how you can get involved in TBTN:
- #IWillTBTN Campaign Creation: Through March 25. Using paper stars and posters, share how you will actively work towards a safer community. These will be collected and displayed at the TBTN rally.
- Sign The Take Back The Night Pledge: As a visual representation of their support to end interpersonal violence, the campus community is invited to sign the pledge. Those who sign the pledge by Tuesday, March 29, will be included during the event.
- Take Back The Night 2022: Hosted in-person at Hendricks Chapel, on Wednesday, March 30, at 7 p.m., the night will include keynote speakers, a rally and march on campus. The event will be followed by a virtual message board where students can provide words of encouragement or messages of support.
