A gender-inclusive event to illuminate the movement to prevent sexual violence and support survivors.

Take Back the Night 2014 features keynote speaker Luz Guerra, who has worked against violence and for the human rights for over 30 years. As a young activist, she was at the first “Take Back the Night” march in San Francisco in 1978, and over the years she's worked in many capacities to incorporate women’s rights, LGBT rights, and indigenous rights into the global human rights framework.
