Take Back the Night

This annual tradition focuses on the right to walk safely at night and aims to end sexual and domestic violence of all kinds. Every year hundreds of communities worldwide come together to march through the streets and hear testimonies from survivors. At UD, every April we gather to hear the stories of survivors and provide them with support and love. This is followed by a candlelit procession through the student neighborhood. “Shatter the Silence. Stop the Violence”
