NOVA’s First Annual Take Back the Night is scheduled at the Loudoun Campus on Tuesday, April 22nd beginning at 6:30 PM.
The purpose of a Take Back The Night is to raise awareness about violence against women, specifically sexual assault and domestic violence. There will be speakers from within the College and from the wider community. Some students will speak out about their personal experiences. Resources will be available from many community agencies. The rally will be followed by a short candlelight march around LO (to invigorate the crowd and to add a special significance to the event. And finally, Sexual Assault Services will provide an open area for those in attendance to share their experiences in a Safe Room at LO.
This entire event has been organized and is sponsored by NOVA Sexual Assault Services. We welcome your attendance. Please pass along the information to anyone you think might be interested.
