Take Back the NightOctober 25, 2018
The WGST 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 fear that women, femme, non-binary, and trans* people encounter when walking alone in the dark. On October 25th, 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.
As is tradition, we encourage everyone to bring flashlights or candles with them! We will meet in from of the student center for opening remarks, and then proceed to march downtown and around Mount A’s campus along a designated route. The route is wheel chair accessible, but if you have any accessibility concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
There will also be a poster making event on the Tuesday, Oct. 23rd. The event will be posted below. We hope to see everyone there
