Take Back the Night
Get ready for Take Back the Night on April 26, 2013 - “It Takes a Community: To Stop Rape, To Allow Rape, To Heal…What have YOU Done?” Download a press release here.
For over 30 years SARSSM and other community partners have worked to raise awareness and visibility by sponsoring a Take Back The Night (TBTN) March and Rally in Portland. The purpose of Take Back the Night is for men and women who have been victims of sexual violence, and for those who love and support them, to give voice to the violence that is occurring right here in our community and to bring awareness to the issue of Sexual Assault. The event includes a march around Downtown Portland, special guest speakers, music, a candle light vigil and a "speak-out".
As a member of the TBTN Committee, you can work with the media, organize speakers for the event, assist in obtaining permits, help with art work and signs, and take part many more fun projects for this meaningful event. The planning committee meets on weekday afternoons in Portland. Additional volunteers are also needed to help the day of the event.
