EVENT DATE: Apr 05, 2013
Take Back the Night is a national annual event put on by the Women's Studies Student Organization here in Athens. The event raises awareness and protests against sexual and domestic violence against women. During the event we raise money for The Cottage and Project Safe. Project Safe is an Athens non-profit organization that works to end domestic violence by providing educational programs, crisis intervention, prevention programs, and support for survivors of domestic violence. The Cottage is a sexual assault and children’s advocacy center in Athens that provides intervention and advocacy for survivors of sexual assault and families impacted by child abuse. Both of these organizations are fighting daily against the violence that Take Back the Night seeks to raise awareness about. This particular page is only linked with The Cottage. If you would like to give money to Take Back the Night beyond Crowdrise or to Project Safe, you can e-mail WSSO at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support in this cause!
