Take Back the Night - Thursday, September 20th

Take Back the Night, an annual event organized by SACHA, is a powerful opportunity for survivors and their supporters to actively build connections, assertively reclaim our right to safety, and courageously stand up against violence.



TBTN centers the experiences of women and non-binary folks. We invite men to cheer on the march from Gore Park.
When: Thursday, September 20th, 2018
  • 6:00pm – We Gather
  • 7:00pm – We Rally
  • 7:30pm – We March
Where: Hamilton City Hall – 71 Main Street, Hamilton ON
More info:

We will have both an HSR and a DARTS buses following the march for folks who are not able to march.

If you are not able to march the entire route there is a short cut back to City Hall at Summers Lane near the Hamilton Convention Centre. There will be a TBTN marshal waiting there to walk with folks back to City Hall.

October 30th - Tarana Burke in Hamilton


When: Tuesday, October 30th

Tarana Burke, best known as the founder of the ‘me too’ movement, has dedicated more than 25 years of her life to social justice and laying the groundwork for a movement initially created to help young women of colour who have survived sexual violence.  The #metoo campaign has emerged as a rallying cry for people everywhere who have survived sexual assault and sexual harassment – and Tarana’s powerful story as the creator of what is now an international movement that supports survivors will move, uplift and inspire.
