Purpose Statement

On April 7, 2012, we're making a stand against sexual violence in our community. Join us as we hold a march and candlelight vigil on the Provo River Trail. Our purpose is two-fold: to give a voice to survivors of sexual assault and to come together as a critical mass of people who are opposed to sexual violence. After the vigil, we'll hear from Dr. Niwako Yamawaki, an expert on gender violence, and Kelsey Hannon, a survivor of sexual assault, on how we can better support survivors of assault and make our community safer. Help us take back the night and take back the Provo River Trail.
