Take Back the Night began for the U.S. in the 1970s to shed light on the ever-present threat of sexual violence that surrounds women, symbolized in the inability to walk alone at night without fear.  Sexual violence is a widespread issue affecting all populations regardless of gender, race, age or socioeconomic status.                                

April is Sexual Violence Awareness Month, and the Sexual Violence Task Force of Tampa Bay is dedicated to the mobilization of the community proclaiming that this violence is unacceptable! We invite you to join us for Take Back the Night: Together We Empower and help create an environment filled with hope, healing and freedom from violence. This event is scheduled for April 21, 2013 at Curtis Hixon Park in Tampa, FL.
