Take Back the Night 2014
DATE: Friday, April 18th 2014
LOCATION: Butler College Amphitheater
TIME: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
On this night we celebrate, honor and support our campus community members who have survived sexual and intimate partner violence. River Huston, an award winning poet, journalist, performer and activist, will be our keynote speaker. By retelling her story as a sexual assault victim during her teen years and describing her pathway to becoming a survivor, River, will set the tone for other survivors and co-survivors to break the silence around their own victimization experiences. As a community we will demonstrate our willingness to embrace the survivors amongst us, while striving to promote a safer campus culture to ultimately reduce the likelihood that another member of our community will become a victim in the future. Throughout the event, we will have musicians, speakers, giveaways, and light refreshments.
Co-sponsored by the Department of Anthropology, the Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies, the Center for Jewish Life, the LGBT Center, the Carl A. Fields Center, the USG Projects Board, the Graduate Student Govermenment Events Board, the Office of Religious Life, and the Women's Center.
