Take Back The Night/Pop-up Art Show

- Sierra Nevada College
Take Back The Night represents the earliest worldwide stand against sexual violence, especially violence against women. TBTN Events began in the 1960’s in Belgium and England with protests about women not being safe walking down the street alone. In 1973 in the United States, women at the University of Southern Florida dressed in black sheets holding broomsticks and marched through campus demanding a women’s center. These early events have grown into hundreds of events on college campuses and in communities of all sizes and locations. The unifying theme is the protest of sexual violence and support for victims.
This year Tahoe SAFE Alliance is bringing Take Back The Night to Incline Village, Nevada.
We will start the march at I.V. Coffee Lab at 4pm, walk to Holman Arts and Media Center to end the event with a pop-up art show. Local artists will highlight some of their work around equality, activism and social justice.
Snacks and drinks will be provided.
