Take Back the Night

‌Take Back The Night seeks to end sexual violence in all of its forms including sexual assault, sexual abuse, dating violence, and domestic violence. TBTN empowers survivors in the healing process and inspires responsibility in all. Take Back The Night's goal is to create safe communities and respectful relationships through awareness events and initiatives.

College campuses and communities around the world hold TBTN events. Each event has its own agenda, but often includes a candlelight vigil; a march or walk; an open mic forum or speak out; presentations by local law enforcement officers, agency representatives, governmental and school leaders, professors and other knowledgeable experts; and a survivor support circle.

The Clothesline Project‌‌

The Clothesline Project logo

‌The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. With the support of many, it has since spread worldwide.


OCTOBER: Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Purple Light Nights®‌‌

Logo for Purple Night Lights

‌Purple Light Nights® is the inspiration of the Covington Domestic Violence Task Force, King County, Washington. The goal is to have all residents shine a purple light on every front porch; hang a string of purple lights in every business window; and decorate each downtown street tree with purple lights, to send the message that “Domestic Violence Has NO Place In Our Community." The outcome of Purple Light Nights® is to increase the awareness of domestic violence issues and it’s effect upon children and families and provide education on building healthy relationships.
