Monday, September 13, 2021
On September 23, join the Take Back the Night March in Charlottetown
Take Back The Night - Thursday, September 23 at 5:30 pm
Take Back the Night is the earliest worldwide movement to stand against sexual violence, specifically, violence against women. TBTN events began in Europe in the 1960s to protest the lack of safety women experienced walking the streets alone. These events have grown into hundreds of events on University campuses, and communities of all sizes and geographical locations.
Historically, Take Back the Night events were “women only”, but as our understanding of the impacts of sexual violence grows so too has the inclusivity of this event. This event is being organized by a coalition of PEI organizations and is spearheaded by the PEI Rape and Sexual Assault Centre. Financial support is provided by the Interministerial Women's Secretariat of the Province of Prince Edward Island. For more information visit www.peirsac.org
