Sacramento Take Back The Night
On Saturday, October 13, the 39th annual Take Back the Night Rally and March will be held at the Sacramento Native American Health Center at 2020 J Street. This event will be held from 5:30 PM- 9:00 PM.
Sacramento’s Take Back the Night Rally and March is held in order to gather the Sacramento community to stand up against sexual assault, domestic violence, gender-based violence and all hate crimes in general.
“We all have to take care of each other,” said local artist and student, Eliot Olson. “It’s all of our responsibilities to create justice, not just a selected committee of oppressors. Community matters.”
There are many resources for people dealing with violence and for people who want to learn how to get more involved in their community. Artists including those that do spoken word, sing or dance will perform and there will be an array of speakers and advocates. The march will begin to make its way through midtown at 8:30 PM and come to an end at 9:00 PM.
Take Back the Night matters to many people in the community and around the Sacramento area. It gives them the chance to speak up, advocate and find ways to help out their community.
