Drum Circle
Cindy Smith, Certified Drum Circle Facilitator, offers the opportunity for rally participants, of all skill levels, to musically convey their support of Take Back the Night. Instruments will be provided, but feel free to bring your own drum, if you'd like. The drum circle will begin when doors open at 5:00 pm.

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, buy a t-shirt and create your own personal message on it, etc.
      • We will also be selling t-shirts in Reeve to decorate the week before the event!

6:00 pm - 6:45 pm

Alumni Welcome and Conference Center
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 the Alumni Welcome and Conference Center 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 14, 2017 through November 1, 2017. 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.
