Take Back the Night
Thursday, September 22, 2016
Sexual violence has an impact on the whole Guelph-Wellington community and beyond. Therefore, it is important to raise awareness as well as advocate for and support those who have experienced sexual violence. Take Back the Night is a march and rally held to reclaim the streets, raise awareness, and foster solidarity against sexual violence. On Thursday, September 22, 2016 at 6pm you are invited to participate in Guelph’s 30th Take Back the Night starting at Marianne’s Park, 176 Gordon Street, Guelph.
This year’s Take Back the Night events will focus on intersectionality. Intersectionality recognizes that oppressive institutions such as race, class, and gender cannot be examined separately from one another. By acknowledging the influence of these multi-layered facets in life, it is our hope that we can help to envision solutions to dismantle oppression associated with sexual violence.
