From Caillin Puente ’15:
In preparation for this year’s Take Back the Night, the Students for Consent and Communication (SFCC) are collecting anonymous stories for the event.
Take Back the Night is the global movement to end sexual violence and allow survivors a safe space to share their stories. In addition to our two speak out circles where every member of the community is able to share their experiences, we are adding these anonymous submissions so anyone who is uncomfortable sharing their stories in person can have them read by an SFCC member during the event.
If you are interested in sharing in this way you can submit stories here, or drop a story off during lunch and dinner in Usdan where we will be tabling for the next week. Again, all submissions are anonymous and we will accept them up until the day of the event next week!
Lastly, this year’s event will also have a new showcase of performances including songs, poems, raps and displays of visual art. If you are interested in performing please contact Caillin Puente (cpuente[at]wesleyan[dot]edu) or Nina Gurak ’16 (ngurak[at]wesleyan[dot]edu). If you have any comments, concerns or questions about the event please feel free to contact us as well.
Take Back the Night will take place Thursday April 24th at 7pm- look out for the Facebook and Wesleying event soon for more details!
