Take Back The Night
Take Back the Night March: The annual Take Back the Night March takes place every April, in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness month. TBTN is intended to increase awareness about sexual violence that occurs within our own community, and is also an opportunity to come out to show support for survivors. Members of the campus and community will gather together to walk as a unit through Charleston and the Eastern Illinois University campus, showing that all people should be able to walk freely, day or night, without the threat of violence. Come join us! We will be posting the date and information about how you can get involved as we get closer to April!
