Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber are committed to promoting a learning, working, and living environment that is free from all forms of gender-based violence, including sexual violence. We will be hosting the fourth annual Take Back the Night (TBTN) event and March on Thursday, September 26, 2019 from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at North Campus. Details will be released in the coming months.
This year, we are focusing on activism and mobilization through movement and art. Our TBTN 2019 theme is "Your body. Your mind. Your time." Everyone is welcome to attend and march in solidarity with survivors of sexual assault and other forms of sexual violence
Learn more about Take Back the Night:
Take Back the Night is a movement started by women who had experienced sexual assault. Women and their allies marched and participated through rallies, marches and candlelight vigils, to denounce all forms of sexual violence. Today, Take Back the Night recognizes that people of all genders can experience sexual assault and other forms of sexual violence. However, women, particularly women with disabilities, indigenous and racialized women, low-income women, and trans women are more likely to experience such violence.
