Sexual Assault Awareness Month - Take Back the Night Story Submission Deadline!

Primary tabs

This year is the 25th anniversary of Take Back the Night. This annual candlelight vigil is held every April at Georgia Tech and dedicated to honoring survivors of sexual violence, including intimate partner violence and stalking. It is our night to both educate the campus community about these issues and to show our community support to our survivors. 

If you are a survivor of sexual violence, we are asking you, if you are comfortable doing so, to help break the silence and consider submitting your story. Your submissions will remain anonymous and remain anonymous unless you decide to read your own story at the event. The submission deadline is Sunday, March 17th.

Sometimes the process of writing your story can bring up emotions, questions or experiences that you'd like to seek support for. If you are considering sharing your story but would like to talk with an advocate before doing so, please do not hesitate to call a confidential VOICE Advocate in Health Initiatives. You can reach Amanda Planchard at (404) 385-4451 or Jennifer Gagen at (404) 385-4464. If you would like to contact the student organizers of Take Back the Night, please contact Aiman Shahab or Meghan Dietrich.
