The annual march to end violence against women takes place this Saturday evening at Dieppe Park.

The Take Back The Night march will begin with a rally at 7pm and then will rally together and march the streets of Windsor to reclaim the streets, reclaim their voices, and reclaim the night.

“We want survivors to feel empowered by the healing process and inspire responsibility in all, and for our community as a whole to come together to support women and children who have been victims of violence,” says Katie Nanson, Chair of the TBTN Organizing Committee.

The Windsor-Essex Take Back the Night Coordinating Committee is comprised of representatives from local community agencies working collaboratively to end sexual assault, domestic violence, sexual abuse and all other forms of violence against women. The committee meets throughout the year to plan the annual rally and march, hold fundraisers, create awareness and actively engage the community in an arts project that is utilized the night of the march.

Following the march everyone will gather for a post rally event will begin at 8pm at Hackforge/Chanosos.
