Take Back the Night

Sexual Assault and Violence Educators (SAVE) will hold Take Back the Night Thursday, April 13, at 7 p.m. in the Thwing Center atrium.

Take Back the Night is an empowering event where members of the community speak out against sexual assault and violence. This event’s mission is to inspire people to be conscious of the reality of this violence within their community and to take action against it.

SAVE hopes to create a space where survivors feel empowered to share their thoughts/experiences and to show them that they are supported and believed.

Individuals have the option to submit their story or any spoken word piece anonymously through an online form.

Survivors also can share their stories non-verbally by participating in the Clothesline Project.

The Clothesline Project is an initiative by the CWRU LGBT Center and Flora Stone Mather Center for Women that accomplishes a similar goal as Take Back the Night in giving survivors a platform to share their story. Through the Clothesline Project, survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence can share their experiences as a survivor on a T-shirt, which will then be hung for people to see on the Case Quad on April 14.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Food will be provided.
