'TAKE BACK THE NIGHT' RALLY APRIL 22

Old Dominion University's Women's Center will host a "Take Back the Night" rally at 4 p.m. Friday, April 22, on Kaufman Mall.

The Hampton Roads community is invited to join the university in rallying for justice on the issues of domestic violence, sexual violence, sexual harassment, sexism and gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender concerns. Admission is free, although monetary donations, personal-hygiene items and canned goods will be accepted for local women's shelters.

International award-winning personal self-defense expert Kym Rock will open the event, and contemporary-folk musician Narissa Bond will perform.
Other community activists will take to the microphone throughout the event to present survivor stories, poetry and words of empowerment. Campus and community organizations will also host informational resource tables about the Clothesline Project, the Silent Witness display, survivor quilt-making and rally sign-making.

Aramark will provide pizza and soft drinks. For more information visit http://studentservices.odu.edu/wc/Index.html or call the ODU Women's Center at 683-4109.
