Stanislaus State Striving to Take Back the Night

April 20, 2016


Take Back the Night, a week-long series of educational events to combat violence of all types, including sexual violence, will be featured at Stanislaus State April 25-29.

According to Meg Lewis, training manager and deputy Title IX coordinator, the events cap off what has been a busy year of training and awareness efforts for Stanislaus State, as colleges across the country are following the congressional mandate to address sexual violence on campuses.

Take Back the Night is sponsored by the Feminist Equality Club, with contributions from Associated Students, Inc., and the University Student Union. An art exhibit “Our Lives Matter” will be open in the Theatre Building, room 40, every day from noon-5 p.m., and is structured to be a protest against rape and other violence.

On Tuesday, April 26, “The Hook Up” takes over the Main Stage at 6 p.m. The following day, Warriors in the Quad (11 a.m.-1 p.m.) will be part of Denim Day. Students are encouraged to wear denim on that day to highlight sexual assault awareness. On Thursday, April 28, the Ten Points of Light rally and vigil will convene at the Theatre Building, room 40.
