Take Back the Night graphic

You can support survivors by spreading the word during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Take Back the Night is the oldest worldwide movement to stand against sexual violence. The goal of these events is to raise awareness of sexualized violence—by shattering the silence and stigma around it—in order to support survivors in their healing process.

Organized by FRCC’s student Feminist Uprising Collective club, Faculty members, instructors, and Student Life, this event will include an afternoon of powerful guest speakers, music, food and activities, as well as a candlelight vigil.
