Take part as we join with The Advocacy Center and allies for a Virtual Take Back the Night event.
From the Advocacy Center: Take Back the Night is an event that demands and calls for the end of Domestic and Sexual Violence. The 2021 theme of “We’re Still Here” was chosen because 42 years after the first Take Back the Night march in Ithaca, we’re still here. 27 years after the Violence Against Women Act was passed, we’re still here. Emerging from a global pandemic where domestic violence and child sexual abuse are on the rise, we’re still here. After being isolated for a year under stay-at-home orders with the people who harm us, we’re still here. As survivors, we’re still here and stand in solidarity to call for an end to sexual and relationship violence. The violence has not stopped. The harm has not stopped. The silencing and looking the other direction has not stopped. And through it all, we’re still here.
