Take Back the Night (and More) for Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Posted By on Tue, Apr 12, 2016 at 2:00 PM

It's April 12, which means Sexual Assault Awareness Month is almost half way over. There are still plenty of opportunities, though, for you to celebrate the month throughout the Tucson community. 

Here's one. To commemorate Sexual Assault Awareness Month, raise awareness and advocate for survivors of sexual assault, the UA's Students Promoting Empowerment and Consent and the Women's Resource Center will put on their one of their largest annual activism endeavors, Take Back the Night, this evening.

The event kicks off with a survivor solidarity march at 5:30 p.m. in the Women's Plaza of Honor and continues after the march with guest speakers, special performances and a "speak out" where survivors will anonymously and publicly share their sexual assault experiences. 

SPEAC and the WRC invite anyone and everyone to march, speak and generally "reclaim the night." Check out Take Back the Night's Facebook page for more TBTN-specific info, and check out the interactive map below for information regarding the rest of SPEAC's Sexual Assault Awareness Month affairs.
