Take Back the Night: Thank You

Post Contributor: Erika Sanchez
On behalf of the Women’s Center, we thank everyone for their assistance and participation in Take Back the Night. The event provided a safe environment where students could feel comfortable in speaking up about their experiences, witness the many people on campus who support them, and learn about the various resources that are available. With persistent focus, leadership, and action, we united to help give voice to victims and bystanders of violence. However, the conversation does not end there. Together we must continue our eorts in ending sexual assault, interpersonal violence, and stalking within our communities. We look forward to seeing you next semester and hope you will join us again next year as we take back the night!

If you, or someone you know, have experienced sexual assault, stalking, or other forms of interpersonal violence such as dating and domestic violence, we encourage you to seek out supportive services. Eastern has a Sexual Assault & Interpersonal Violence Response Team (SAIV-RT) available to give guidance, support, and information. If you would like to learn more, we encourage you to visit www.easternct.edu/saiv or speak with the Coordinator of the SAIV-RT, Starsheemar Byrum at byrums@easternct.edu or (860) 465-4314.
