Tonight is Take Back the Night

Norm at the gathering of students for TBTN MarchTo end domestic violence and sexual assault, we all need to be part of the solution. Educating yourself and others, helping a friend who is being abused, speaking up about abuse, and acting as an engaged bystander are all examples of things we can do to help. Help the Haven Project spread awareness about sexual violence and support survivors of violence by joining the Take Back the Night March and Speak Out. 

Tonight is Take Back the Night! The march around campus kicks off at 8:00 p.m. from Putt-Delaney Courtyard and culminates in a Speak Out in the HUB Ohio Room, where victims can come forward and share their experiences in a safe, public forum. 

Starting at 7:15 p.m. bring your I-Card and receive a free t-shirt (until supply is exhausted).
