What is it?

Take Back the Night (TBTN) began in the late 1960s in the United States after coming from Europe. People all over the world speak out through TBTN about sexual and domestic violence offering hope for millions around the world. At University of Richmond, students will speak out about sexual assault experiences to spread awareness to campus.

When is it?

TBTN at University of Richmond is on Tuesday, April 5 at 7:30 pm.

Where is it?

The event will be held on The Forum. 

Why should I attend?

TBTN aims at raising awareness for sexual violence, not only on campus, but also off campus too. With the rate of sexual assaults increasing, events like TBTN where survivors can share their stories help to spread awareness and increase understanding of what is or isn’t assault.
