Take Back the Night brings survivors, supporters, activists and community leaders together in a call for the end of violence against women.
Our guest speaker will be Dr. M. Susan Scanlon, a local gynecologist and author of “The Gyne’s Guide for College Women: How to Have a Healthy, Safe and Happy Four Years.”
After hearing Dr. Scanlon’s keynote address, we will host a candlelight vigil and march to honor the Will County women and children who have been murdered over the past decade.
There will be a pantry accepting donations of paper goods, toiletry items, or grocery store and gas station gift cards to donate for use by our area domestic violence shelters.
Various organizations will be available at resource tables with information to assist victims and/or their survivors.
The event will be hosted at Joliet Central High School in the new Student Center. Parking is available in lots C, D, E, and H. A sign language interpreter will be present.
