Castlegar Take Back the Night March raises awareness about violence against women

Almost one hundred people came out last Thursday night to participate in the Take Back the Night march. Take Back the Night is an international annual event with the mission of ending sexual, relationship, and domestic violence in all forms.

Marchers were led from Canadian Tire to Safeway by a group of drummers. They held signs stating: “Women unite, take back the night, Men speak out, Courage love kindness, Domestic violence has to stop, Silence does not equal consent and No means no.”

If you are a victim of abuse, local victim’s services can be accessed through the RCMP as well as Castlegar & District Community Services, which offers programs including sexual abuse intervention, safe homes, children who witness abuse, stopping the violence counseling, bridges for women, and family and women’s support.
