Take Back the Night will Feature:

Opening event in the Oak Grove

  • Members of the IUP and Indiana communities will gather and have the opportunity to chalk the walk with supportive messages, create a sign, view the Clothesline Project, visit tables with resources for support, grab a free T-shirt while supplies last, and listen to empowering guest speakers.  

March through campus
7:00 p.m.

  • Arrive by 6:45 p.m. for directions to line up. The march begins in the Oak Grove, proceeds through campus, and ends at the HUB. The route is ADA accessible and takes 15 minutes.

Survivor Support Reception and Speak-Out in the HUB Ohio Room
7:30 p.m.

  • Any student is welcome to share their story in this safe and judgment-free space. Counselors will be on hand to talk with anyone who needs support.
