The Thompson Crisis Centre has organized a local event to shed a spotlight on sexual and gender-based violence.
The “Take Back the Night” name was coined in the 70s after a march was held in Philadelphia in response to a woman being stabbed while walking home from work, and has since been spread around the world.
The aim is to unify communities to take a stand against violence in our homes and streets to make them safer places.
The Take Back the Night Walk in Thompson will be tomorrow at 5 p.m. at Robins Donuts.
For more on Take Back the Night, listen to Thompson Today at 12:40 and 5:10 this afternoon.
