Take Back the Night, Be Not Afraid

With April being sexual assault awareness month, Facts 4 Life and Gender Café have put together a full agenda of activities. These events include Take Back the Night, where a group of women searching for empowerment, and men who wish to support them, come together to literally take control of the night. Everyone participating will meet in front of the Chapel on Thursday, April 30, where they will motivate one another, hear stories about sexual assault, and begin the ceremony. Then the group will march through town with candles and chants, showing the world that they should not have to be afraid of the dark. Upon returning to the school, refreshments will be served in the Chapel, where participants are welcome to mingle with one another.
