Take Back The Night 2017

From Wesleyan Students for Consent and Communication:

No one should fear the night.. or the day.
Shatter the Silence. Stop the Violence.

Take Back the Night is a global movement to end sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual abuse and all other forms of sexual violence. This year, we will march from Olin at 7 to Foss for some student performances. At 8:30, we will have our first speak out circle on the CFA green, where survivors or friends can share their stories of sexual violence in a safe and non-judgmental space. After the speak out circle, the group will circle back to Andrus for a second speak out circle. There will be a debriefing session in the DFC afterwards.

Join us for poster making at Community Engagement House Wednesday, April 26 at 4:30pm!
