Take Back the Night, one of the biggest marches at IUP, is finally here!
Take Back the Night is an annual march to bring awareness regarding the impact of sexual assault and violence on victims and survivors. On Wednesday, April 6, 2011, participants are encouraged to wear their navy blue Take Back the Night t-shirt and meet in the courtyard between Putt and Delaney Halls at 7:45 p.m.
The march will start at 8:00 p.m., rain or shine (rain location will be at the covered entrance to Delaney Hall, at the corner of Grant Street and Pratt Drive).
Participants will carry candles and handmade signs and march through campus. The march will end at the Memorial Field House, where the Survivor Speak Out will take place.
The Survivor Speak Out is a powerful event which offers survivors of violence an opportunity to give voice to their experiences. Some share their stories or provide support to others, while publically affirming their transition from victim to survivor. It is a powerful and empowering event for everyone who attends.
We need your support. Bring a friend, classmate, or just yourself! Show your support to end sexual violence in our community.
