TBTN (Take Back the Night)

SLESAC sponsors an annual social movement called "Take Back the Night." "Take Back the Night" March & Vigil is a public protest designed to bring awareness to ending violence against women. It serves as a means for women to unite and voice our desire to end the fear and perceived responsibility women experience when it comes to sexual assault, harassment, and other forms of violence.


A "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" Event is a playful opportunity for men to raise awaremess in their community about the serious causes, effect and remediations to men's sexualized violence against women. There is an old saying: "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." Men are asked to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes and it gets the community to talk about something that is really difficult to talk about.
