Take Back the Night with Safer

Join Safer for Sexual Assault Action Month (SAAM) and the program’s 25th Anniversary recognition at the month’s culminating event, Take Back the Night, an international event with the mission to end sexual violence and domestic violence. This year the event will take place on Thursday, April 28 in the University Union Plaza from 6 to 8 p.m. Please join us for a Survivor Speakout, a Resource Fair, survivor healing corners, art installations, a solidarity march, live music with Couch Dog, and a candlelight vigil. Admission is free and the first 100 students will get free food!

Take Back the Night is an international movement to create safe communities and respectful relationships through awareness events and initiatives. The movement aims to amplify survivor’s voices to empower, inspire and create solidarity among both survivors and allies.

Safer is Cal Poly’s primary confidential resource for addressing sexual assault, intimate partner violence, domestic violence, stalking, sexual exploitation and harassment. It offers holistic services through prevention education and survivor advocacy to the entire campus community.

Cal Poly Police Department supports Safer and through its longstanding partnership continues to provide assistance and security to survivors in our community.

Take Back the Night is a great way to show support for survivors. We hope that you will come round out Sexual Assault Action Month by attending and supporting this event! For more information please visit,
