Take Back the Night and The Men’s Vigil ~ start at 9 pm in the BC Courtyard
Take Back the Night and the Men's Vigil are national events to reclaim in which our University participates. Take Back the Night is a women's march around the campus to make it a safe space for all who go here. We chant, sing, do readings, and leave a rose at every place we stop. Meanwhile, the men are holding their Vigil in the BC courtyard to talk about responses to sexual assault and how to prevent it. In the end, we all come together for discussion, tea and cookies! If you are transgender or genderqueer, please feel free to attend whichever event (Take Back the Night or the Men's Vigil) you feel more comfortable at.
The Clothesline Project ~Commons (1st floor)
Stop by to look at the shirts, talk to our table and/or make your own shirt. The T-shirts of the Clothesline Project were made by members of our community who were victims of violence against women and by their friends and families. The Clothesline Project is about bearing witness to the violence against women that has occurred in our lives, and honoring and supporting the victims and survivors.
