The Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) is hosting their annual Take Back The Night event. The event is from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., April 24 and located outside at St. Bridget’s church, 211 East Division Street, River Falls.

Take Back The Night is an event to empower and support survivors, raise awareness, and let it be known that sexual violence will not be tolerated in our communities. S.A.R.T. cares for the entire St. Croix Valley and anyone and everyone in the community is invited to join in the Take Back The Night event.

Starting at 7:00 p.m. there will be a march on Main Street. All the participants of the event will join together and march down Main Street to show their support to the victims of sexual assault. From 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. there will be a candlelight vigil, where the survivors of rape can share their stories. Take Back The Night is always a powerful and moving event. Free food will be provided.
