Take Back the Night

Date: Monday, April 24th
Time: 6pm-8pm, Rally at 6pm in front of Old Main, March to LBJ Amphitheater
Place: Rally starts at 6pm Old Main and we will march to the LBJ Student Center Amphitheater. Spoken word starts at 6:30pm.

Join Texas State University as we take back the night! Help us create safe and respectful communities and end sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and all other forms of sexual violence through rallying together and having our voices heard.

We all play a role in helping to end sexual violence on our campus and in our communities.  It will take all our voices in solidarity to speak out against all forms of violence. We are looking for students to share stories and messages surrounding sexual violence through spoken word.    

Texas State’s Take Back The Night will be an empowering event that will help shatter the silence that often exists around sexual violence.
