On Wednesday, March 31st Lexington will join the national movement of Take Back the Night with a march and rally downtown. Thirty three years ago, women started to stand up and speak out against sexual violence under the banner of Take Back the Night. During those years, Take Back the Night became known internationally as a visible way for men and women to take a stand against sexual violence as well as domestic violence in their community.
If you would like to participate, meet at one of the MARCH WITH ME launch sites at 7:00pm. Current sites include the Patterson Office Tower plaza at the University of Kentucky, the parking lot of 3rd Street Stuff on Limestone, and Triangle Park. The marches will lead everyone to Courthouse Plaza in downtown Lexington where the rally will be from 7:30-8:30 pm. Area colleges, high schools, and community members are invited to participate in this powerful mission to illuminate the darkness surrounding victims of violence and speak up for healing, change, and the right for everyone to live free of violence and fear. The rally will include special speakers, musical guests, a candlelight vigil, community resource tables, and more.
