Take Back the Night Kingston 2017

September 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Join us on September 21st at Confederation Basin for Take Back the Night. TBTN is an international event that has been happening around the world for over 35 years, for survivors to come together to protest and take direct action against sexualized violence.

Why at night? Historically women folks have always been told not to venture out at night for fear of violence; the early marches began as a way to protest this violence and raise community awareness.

Take Back the NIght is open to all genders and identites who have experienced violence in their lives as well as also for ally’s and supporters.

Come check out the community booths and activities in the park!

Bring a noisemaker, pot and pan, drum! Bring a sign or make one at the park! Get LOUD!!

Events begin in the park at 630pm
Speakers and Rally begin at 7pm
