LEEDS AND GRENVILLE – Local Committee Invites You to Celebrate the Right to Be Free from Violence
On Friday September 8, 2017 from 5:30pm-8:30pm, residents of Leeds & Grenville are invited to come together at Hardy Park in downtown Brockville for our annual Take Back the Night park celebration. Join us in raising our voices and showing community solidarity in ending violence against women.
All across Canada, Take Back the Night events will be taking place throughout the month of September. Events can include marches, rallies, candlelight vigils and are designed to raise awareness of the safety issues women and children face in our country. Take Back the Night is about women reclaiming the right to be free of violence and be able to be wherever they may choose to be at night without being fearful.
Our Take Back the Night evening will include live musical entertainment throughout the night by Dan Schaafsma of Half Nelson. There will also be glow in the dark Zumba led by Meredith Armstrong of the YMCA (7:00pm), a BBQ benefiting Leeds & Grenville Interval House, cotton candy, and activities.
The night will end with a rally and march from Hardy Park to City Hall starting at 7:45pm. Help us build a community of support for survivors and raise awareness to end violence against women by joining us on our march.
Please bring flashlights to help us light up the park and something comfortable to sit on while you enjoy the night! Stop in for one event or stay for the entire night!
This is an inclusive, family-friendly, FREE event open to all members of the public of all ages!
