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.
Mohawk College journalism students Jennifer and LIz made this video about TBTN 2015:
This year’s event will include giant puppets, information tables, drumming, Zumba, sign making, music, some surprises and, of course, a loud and empowered march!
.When: Thursday, October 13th, 2016
6:00pm – We Gather
7:00pm – We Rally
7:30pm – We March
Where: Hamilton City Hall – 71 Main Street, Hamilton ON
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.
Join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtags #TBTN2016 and #WeBelieveSurvivors.
