International Women's Day
Take Back the Night
From their website: The Windsor- Essex County Take Back The Night Coordinating Committee is comprised of representatives from local community agencies working collaboratively to end sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual abuse and all other forms of violence against women. Together we meet throughout the year to plan the annual rally and march, hold fundraisers, put on a movie night to create awareness, and actively engage the community in an arts project that is utilized the night of the march creating a wonderful opportunity to do outreach and further raise awareness. Take Back The Night is an international event that helps raise awareness and to fight against violence against women and children. The event acknowledges all forms of gendered violence against women and children and is hosted annually in Windsor. This year will be our 23rd annual march on September 19, 2015. We want survivors to feel empowered in the healing process and inspire responsibility in all. Every year we hit the streets with a march and a rally to raise awareness of issues around gender-based violence and to call our community into action.
