Take Back the Night is an annual event held each April that seeks to raise awareness about gender-based violence affecting members of our community and to provide support for survivor empowerment and healing.

The evening begins with a short program in the Student Union Ballroom where invited speakers and performers highlight the importance of primary prevention and community response. Students then lead a candlelight march through campus, followed by a survivor speak-out. During the speak-out members of our community will have the chance to share their personal stories surrounding gender-based violence. A coffee house will take place at the conclusion of the event in the Women’s Center (SU 421G)
