In an event designed to affirm the freedom of everyone in the community to not be sexually assaulted, the Take Back the Night Committee had more than 300 people marching in the sandy, windy evening of April 4.
With exhibits and events beginning at 5 p.m. Saturday at the Tays Special Events Center, Take Back the Night offered 16 information tables, a self defense workshop, an art show and a poetry slam as precursors to a rally and march.
“For as crummy a weather as we had, I think the attendance was fabulous,” said Tina Godby-Ware, one of the organizers and a coordinator for the local Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner program. “I am thrilled with the response.”
