Women and Men Take Back the Night
This annual march against sexual violence has been co-sponsored by Loyola University New Orleans and Tulane University since 1990. The purpose of the march is to heighten awareness of sexual violence in our community and to empower survivors. The emotionally powerful evening begins with speakers who share their personal stories of rape, assault or domestic violence, and their journeys to healing and hope. The candlelit march proceeds from Loyola to Tulane, where others have the opportunity to speak out against sexual violence. This university-wide event is coordinated through the University Counseling Center. Contact Erin Shapiro, for more information about this year's march or if you would like to volunteer to assist with coordinating this event.
