From The Current
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and during our first episode on April 13th, Michele Pliner and Marilyn Shamblin of the Sexual Assault Task Force of Tampa Bay joined us to discuss Take Back The Night 2013. This free event will take place on April 21st from 4-7 PM in Curtis Hixon Park, 700 North Ashley Drive in Tampa.
Raising awareness of sexual violence and celebrating its survivors are what Take Back The Night is all about, and the event includes a music fest and resource fair at 4 PM, a ceremony including men’s pledge to stand up against sexual assault at 6 PM, and an empowerment march and candlelight vigil at 7 PM.
You can also follow the action and share thoughts and photos on Twitter and Instagram by using the hashtag #TBTN2013. To learn more about the event, visit them online at http://www.svtftampabay.com/takebackthenight2013.htm.
