The 22nd annual New Orleans Take Back the Night ceremony and march to end gender-based and sexual violence will be held Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013 at 6 pm. Join with Tulane, Loyola, Dillard, and other community members as we come together to “shatter the silence and stop the violence.” Take Back the Night begins with opening remarks and testimonies from survivors at the Loyola horseshoe, in front of Marquette Hall on St. Charles Avenue. Candles will be distributed, and the march will begin on St. Charles, turning onto Broadway, and entering Tulane’s campus near Newcomb Hall. Participants will proceed to the Qatar Ballroom in the Lavin-Bernick Center for an open mic event, where survivors and others are invited to speak out, and conclude after a performance by the Dillard Elites dance team. Be on the lookout throughout October for raffle tickets to benefit local charities including Crescent House, Metropolitan Center for Women and Children and the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) program. Items being raffled include Voodoo Arena Football season tickets, Zephyrs tickets, and various other items and baskets. Additionally, faculty and staff are encouraged to help raise awareness by participating in Denim and Teal Day. Just give your $5 donation to your office’s Take Back the Night liaison to wear a teal shirt and ribbon with jeans on Wednesday, Oct. 23.
