Take Back the Night
Tuesday, April 12, 7-10 p.m.
Student Union Ballroom and march around campus
Students of the University of AkronWomen’s Studies Program’s “She’s a Rebel: Women And Resistance” class, along with Liberation In Progress, UA’s student feminist group, are proud to host the first Take Back The Night event on the UA campus.
This event, which will be held Tuesday, April 12, is part of a nationwide effort that allows women to come together, build strength and fight back against the violence that plagues the lives of women everyday.
The event will begin with an introduction to the event and speakers at 7 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom, followed by a march around campus. It will wrap up with activities back in the SU Ballroom after the march.
Several community support networks will be present, and free food will be provided.
Please join us in this effort to raise awareness about violence against women on our campus and help us support victims of violence.
