Willimantic, Conn. - The Women's Center at Eastern Connecticut State University will host its annual Take Back the Night march, rally and speak-out from 7 to 11 p.m. on Sept. 23. The public is invited. Admission is free.

Take Back the Night is a communitywide protest against sexual assault and violence. The event will start in Eastern's Student Center Theatre with a rally and speak-out at 7 p.m. Survivors of sexual assault will share their stories. Eastern President Elsa M. Núñez and the police department will address the rally. Afterward, a march around the campus and immediate community will take place at 8 p.m. The march will be followed by a reception and poetry performance by the Saltines in the Student Center Lobby and Student Center Theatre from 9 to 11 p.m.

Take Back the Night has inspired men and women to take a stand against violence and helped those who have been victims of sexual assault a chance to heal. For more information, contact the Women's Center at women-ctr@easternct.edu or (860)465-4313.
