Take Back the Night

Posted by Admin On 11:20:00 AM
Please join us for Georgia Tech's 22nd annual Take Back the Night, a candlelight vigil dedicated to honoring survivors of sexual violence, including rape and sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. Every year, we invite Georgia Tech community members to share their stories of their experience with sexual or relationship violence, either through anonymous submission or by reading it at Take Back the Night. This powerful event is focused on supporting and elevating the voices of survivors, and educating our community about these issues.

Sexual violence is an issue that can impact anyone. As long as sexual violence impacts one person on our campus, it impacts all of us. We believe that one of the key steps to ending sexual and relationship violence is believing survivors and creating spaces to allow survivors to share their stories, whether they happened recently or years ago. The courage and strength in sharing their stories will help other survivors know that they are not alone, and that we do not tolerate sexual violence or let it go silently into the night.

There will be counselors and other resources available at the event.

This event is part Sexual Assault Awareness Month and is hosted by the VOICE initiative, PAUSE student organization, the Women's Resource Center, and the Office of Health Promotion. Learn more about Take Back the Night and our upcoming Teal Ribbon Day of Action on April 14 at www.voice.gatech.edu.
