    “Take Back the Night is an annual event celebrated around the world to speak out against sexual violence, raise awareness, and support survivors. The first Take Back the Night in the United States took place in 1973. Our community takes pride in our efforts to observe and honor this tradition each year.

    Join us for a march, candle light vigil, music, dance, survivor speak out, poetry, resource fair, speakers and more.”
