Take Back the Night March and Rally
UF, Sexual Trauma/Interpersonal Violence Education team (STRIVE) & Alachua County Victim Services and Rape Crisis Center are teaming up to host a Take Back the Night event that includes a march and rally to end sexual violence on Wednesday, April 18th at 6pm.
Take Back the Night’s supporters have always understood the power of speaking out. Rape, sexual assault, sexual abuse and intimate partner violence are often labeled “crimes of silence” because of the low reporting rates, stigma associated with victimization and social discomfort.
The event begins at 6pm at Turlington Plaza on UF campus and will begin marching at 6:30pm. Paint, posters, support will be available to any and all that attend. After the walk, an open mic portion will conclude the events where survivors and supporters are encouraged to speak out on the Reitz lawn @ 7:30.
For more information, call Alachua County Victim Services and Rape Crisis Center at (352) 264-6760.
