Resource Fair and Activities
Walk through our Resource Fair! We will have tables set up so you can learn more about healthy relationships, sexual assault, and intimate partner violence from campus offices/organizations and community agencies throughout the Fox Valley. Some activities will be:

      • Temporary tattoos, health relationship trail mix, and buy a Take Back the Night merchandise.
      • We will also be providing flameless candles with the option to write on the container a person's name to allow participants to walk in memory or walk for someone affected by domestic violence.

5:45 pm - 6:45 pm

Opening Ceremony and Call to Action
Reeve Memorial Union Ballroom
Hear from a survivor and community agencies as they share their stories. Feel a part of a National event that decries relationship and sexual violence in our community. The rally is a time for us to learn more about domestic and sexual violence and hear what each of us can do to support victims, survivors, their families and friends and end violence.

6:45 pm - 7:30 pm

We will be leaving Reeve Memorial Union and heading towards the Christine Ann Center; where we will stop for a moment of silence. The march will then proceed to the Algoma Boulevard entrance of Reeve Union.

7:30 pm

Reception and Never Silent Exhibition
Gail Floether Steinhilber Art Gallery (3rd Floor of Reeve)
Art can be a powerful way of expressing what words don't fully describe. The TBTN Survivor Exhibition will be open for viewing from October 24, 2018 through November 21, 2018. Art work by UWO alumni and local artist, Michael Wartgow will be on display that tells the survivor stories and the empowerment they had to regain their lives. Come see the personal stories of our survivors and learn more about how relationship violence and sexual assault impacts our community.

We will end the evening with inspiration to keep the community mission of ending domestic and sexual violence at the forefront all year long. Please join us for the opening reception of the Never Silent art exhibit.

*We will also be offering hot chocolate and coffee for after the march.
