The University of Missouri-Kansas City’s Violence Prevention and Response Project will host the university’s seventh annual Take Back the Night March and Rally on Thursday, April 25. Note that this is the new, rescheduled date.
At 6:30 p.m. a pre-march rally will take place in the UMKC Quad, near 52ndStreet and Rockhill Road. Later, sexual assault survivors will speak about their transitions from victims to survivors.
Take Back the Night is an annual event that coincides with Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The event provides an annual opportunity to promote awareness of sexual violence and its prevention.
All of UMKC’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month events are free and open to the public; no RSVP is required. Take Back the Night is a collaboration with UMKC’s Women’s Center, Office of Student Involvement, the Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault, the Kansas City Anti-Violence Project, and other campus and community organizations.
