Take Back the Night
April 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Take Back the Night rallies and marches represent the earliest worldwide stand against sexual violence. With the first rally and march happening in Belgium and England in the 1960s, the event has spread to over 36 countries in over 800 communities.
The first Take Back the Night in the United States was in 1973. Wichita’s first Take Back the Night was in 1987.
The unifying connection between all these events is a protest against sexual violence and support for survivors.
Our streets, our homes, and our communities should be safe, day or night. In public spaces and private spaces, all of us should live without the threat and occurrence of sexual violence.
If you are a survivor, please know that Take Back the Night is a safe space to come, share your experience, and to be heard and believed. If you are an ally and concerned community member, come out and show your support and dedication to making Wichita a safe place for everyone.
