Niagara University is inviting the community to Take Back the Night on Thursday, March 31, through participation in the annual event that is held in conjunction with the Take Back the Night national movement and aims to end sexual, relationship, and domestic violence in all forms.
NU’s TBTN event begins in the Gallagher Center gym at 5 p.m. with resource tables, a brief program, a student-organized march across campus, and a candlelight vigil.
This year’s featured speaker is Dr. Alexa Sardina, assistant professor in the Division of Criminal Justice at California State University, Sacramento, and a rape survivor. Please note that this event may contain triggering and/or sensitive material. Sexual violence and sexual assault are some topics mentioned.
Take Back the Night is a nonprofit charity with the mission of ending sexual violence in all forms, including sexual assault, sexual abuse, dating violence, and domestic violence. TBTN empowers survivors in the healing process, and has hosted events throughout the world for over 50 years. The TBTN event at Niagara University is co-sponsored by the YWCA of the Niagara Frontier, the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office, and Pinnacle Community Services.
