In celebration of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, PSU’s Women’s Resource Center and Portland Women’s Crisis Line will be collaborating to host this year’s Take Back the Night/Bike Back the Night event. This is an event to recognize and speak out in opposition of the violence which occurs against women in our community. Our core message is to promote the understanding that everyone deserves the right to feel safe in their neighborhood and on the streets. This year we will be leading two different routes, one on bike and one on foot, with the goal of spreading the message about ending sexual violence throughout the city. We will also begin this year’s event with some local entertainment, and following the ride/march everyone will be invited to participate in a survivor speak out and vigil as a way to honor sexual assault survivors.
This event has existed in some form since the mid-1970’s, and has come to be recognized as an international effort to spread awareness and raise activism around this very important issue. In the last 30 years, countries including Canada, Belgium, Germany, Great Britain, India and Australia have held a variety of TBTN events—and although the focus of these events has ranged throughout the years, Take Back the Night has re-centered its emphasis on eliminating sexual violence in all forms, with thousands of colleges, universities, women’s centers, and rape crisis lines sponsoring events all over the country.
The Committee is still looking for volunteers. If you would like to help with this event come in to the WRC and talk with Kari Anne or email Elena at TBTN.PSU@gmail.com
