LUBBOCK, TX - On Wednesday, April 26, the Texas Tech campus will host the annual "Take Back the Night" event, which is aimed at bringing awareness to sexual assault and violence.
For 40 years, the event has been recognized internationally and across the U.S., members of Female Majority Leadership Alliance (FMLA) group at Texas Tech say it's important that it is celebrated in Lubbock as well.
"It's important for our students to hear each other and show admin that they are very active to end any type of harassment or assault or gender-based violence that maybe happening on our campus," said Tricia Earl, FMLA supervisor.
The rally and march will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Circle. Those walking can come beforehand to make posters and grab a teal blue ribbon in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month (recognized in April). The march will travel down Broadway to Fuzzy's, and then back to Memorial Circle. Victims of sexual violence will be sharing their personal stories with the crowd.
