The DRCC invites the community to our free Take Back the Night event on Thursday, September 22, 2022 at Lakeview Park, Oshawa (55 Lakeview Park Ave.).
Take Back the Night, an annual community event, aims to raise awareness about all forms of sexual violence through reclaiming the voices of survivors and speaking out against these crimes. Take Back the Night: Brighter than Ever is a free rain-or-shine event, open to community members and allies. Pizza and refreshments will be provided to guests, and there will be survivor speakers, poetry readings, and live entertainment for guests to enjoy.
The event will run from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM local time, and will be hosted at Lakeview Park in Oshawa, under the picnic shelter in Area C. of the park. Free parking is available on site in front of the event location. The DRCC will be accepting donations at the event, and guests will receive a free Take Back the Night tote bag with every donation of $25 or more.
“Take Back the Night is an opportunity for our community to come together with a powerful and empowering collective voice” stated Lynn Cohen, DRCC’s Counsellor and Outreach Coordinator. “It’s a space to speak out against sexual violence, and to understand the true nature of its impacts through the voices of survivors.”
