Take Back the Night

April 20, 2023, City staff from the Equity and Engagement Department attend the annual “Take Back the Night” event hosted by Rape Advocacy, Counseling, and Education Services (RACES). This event is part of the larger schedule of events to bring attention to Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April. The evening begin with a march to the courthouse and then around the downtown Urbana area, culminating at Lincoln Mall for participants to hold a space for community with one another. “Take Back the Night” is a powerful night for survivors to share their stories, hear from others, and participate in survivor’s art expression.
