Take Back the Night brings Tucson together to strive for communities liberated from sexual violence by creating space where survivors can be centered and empowered, by prioritizing healing, and by inspiring accountable action toward intersectional and collaborative justice.
Take Back the Night is an
annual event observed around the world to speak out against sexual violence, raise awareness, and support survivors. The first Take Back the Night in the United States took place in 1973.
Our community takes pride in our efforts to honor this tradition each year and includes a march, candle light vigil, performances, and opportunities for survivors to speak out.
