Take Back the Night 2015

Sexual violence has an impact on the whole community. Nearly one in three women and one in six men are survivors of some form of sexual assault. Events such as Take Back the Night shed light on these highly stigmatized issues – the more the community is educated, the better members are able to break the silence and prevent further violence. Our hope is that someday, no one fears the night…or the day.

This event will feature music and speakers at the rally, followed by a march through downtown Guelph to unite in solidarity against sexual violence.

Dates: Thursday, September 24/2015

Times: 6:00 pm rally at Marianne's Park 7:00 march

Location: Marianne's Park, 176 Gordon St, Guelph Ontario
