Take Back the Night MarchOctober 7, 2019
The Mount Allison University Women’s and Gender Studies Society is excited to be hosting the annual Take Back the Night rally here in Sackville! Take Back the Night is an event that acknowledges and highlights the safety issues and fears that women, femme, non-binary, and trans* people encounter when walking alone in the dark. On October 16th, we will “take back the streets” and claim the right to walk at night without fear of sexual assault! This is a time to make our voices and experiences of sexual assault and harassment heard and to come together to support survivors. This rally is open to everyone in the Sackville community and we welcome folks of all genders, races, ages, and abilities.
As is tradition, we encourage everyone to bring flashlights or candles with them. As well as to dress warmly. We will meet in front of the student center for opening remarks, and then proceed to march downtown and around Mount A’s campus along with a designated route. The route is wheelchair accessible, but if you have any accessibility concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
** The TBTN rally is a family-friendly event and we will NOT tolerate any form of violence, aggression, or discriminatory acts, which includes but is not limited to: racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, queerphobia, fatphobia, ableist comments, sexual harassment, and bullying. Please make sure to care for yourself and others. **
Please feel free to send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns about the event.
