Take Back The Night

Since the early 1970s, Take Back the Night has been a worldwide event for those who actively stand against sexual and gender-based violence. TBTN is about the power of speaking out. Rape, sexual assault, sexual abuse, and domestic violence are often labeled “crimes of silence” because of low reporting rates and social stigma. By breaking this silence, TBTN reminds survivors know that they are not alone, and that these crimes will not be tolerated or left to go silently into the night.
