Take Back the Night!

This April, the WRC and PASA have come together to continue the tradition of UWM’s annual Take Back the Night. Passionate activists and victim/survivors from our campus community come together to stand against sexual violence and end the silence surrounding sexual assault at UWM.

During the day, we encourage everyone to participate in the Take Back the Night social media march on our social media (Instagram | wgs.uwm & uwmwrc). On the day of the social march, Thursday, April 29, the WRC will post graphics you can share out on your social media. We also encourage you to pick up a Take Back the Night lawn sign to increase visibility in your community.

In the evening, we will be hosting the speak out event via Zoom (link here). This portion of the event is intended for healing and raising awareness by implementing the theory of thought that the personal is political. At the speak out, Dr. Melinda Brennan will speak, and then survivors/victims/and allies are encouraged to speak out about the sexual assault epidemic and/or share part of their story. Please encourage community members to join and support survivors.

When: This Thursday, April 29, 2021 7 PM Central Time (US and Canada)
