This is Ithaca’s 38th Take Back the Night! TBTN is a march, rally, speak-out, and vigil in solidarity with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
This year’s theme is Healing Through Storytelling. The Collective of community members chose this theme because we wanted to highlight how the healing process often begins with sharing your story. #ManyVoicesTBTN!
The rally will begin at 7pm at the Bernie Milton Pavilion with performances from Lady D, Liz Enwright, Becca Myers, Karen Wyatte, April West, Angie Beeler, Cora Ellen Luke, Izzy and the Ballerinas, and Jaya the Trust Coach. Our keynote speaker will be the second Tompkins County Poet Laureate, Michelle Courtney Berry!
Check out Michelle's Ted X talk at IC! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvQyN8TmFd4
Shirts are available at the rally for a sliding scale of $12-20.
If you can't make it but want to participate: You can send a message to support survivors! Your message will be posted on a display board at the Take Back the Night Rally. If you would like to share your story or message for the speak-out, it will be read with anonymity by a member of the Collective at the speak-out portion of the Rally.
