Take Back the Night returns this Thursday with a rally at the steps of Olin. It will then proceed with a march to several locations on campus for speak-out circles, and conclude with a candlelight vigil. For those of you who don’t know, Take Back the Night is an annual event at Wesleyan University and college campuses nationwide to raise awareness about sexual violence. This event is an opportunity for the Wesleyan community to gather in support of survivors of sexual violence and for those survivors to share their stories in a safe space. Everyone is encouraged to attend and participate in this important and powerful event.
Date: Thursday, 10/16
Place: Olin steps
