Across Ontario

Throughout September and October, Take Back The Night events will be held across Ontario, providing an opportunity to unite in the fight against sexual violence. Throughout the province, across the country, and around the world, women, girls, Trans and gender-diverse people, face violence every day because of their gender, gender expression, gender identity or perceived gender. Individuals with multiple marginalized identities often face higher rates of sexual violence and abuse and many face intersecting systems of oppression that prevent them from receiving the support they need to survive and prosper.

By attending TBTN rallies, marches and other related events, we show solidarity and support for survivors and reinforce our commitment to ending sexual violence.

See a list of events below to find one near you.
