Take Back The Night
Please join us in a walk to create a safe space that shows survivors of sexual assault and sexual abuse that they are not alone. We plan to walk across the 5C campuses on the evening of Thursday, April 24th to demonstrate this support.

We cannot eliminate sexual violence without addressing the ways that it affects different communities. We recognize that people experience sexual violence very differently based on their race, class, sexuality, gender, location, etc. It is critical to engage these diverse groups in order to create a community where people feel empowered to stand together to denounce sexual violence. TOGETHER, LETS TAKE BACK THE NIGHT!

*Marston Quad is located in front of Bridges Auditorium.

The workshop will ALSO include somatic breathing exercises that address the effects of trauma on different parts of the body.
