Stand Against Domestic Violence with Mahogany Philly! Take Back the Night!


Take a Stand Against Domestic & Sexual Violence with Mahogany Philly!  Take Back the Night!

Join Mahogany Philly and the city of Philadelphia as we unite to take a stand against domestic & sexual violence.  Special thanks to our Special Events Director, Deandra, for suggesting and hosting this event!

Details

Event includes:

March to take back the streets starting at one of four locations heading to the First Unitarian Church.

Storytelling and sharing about living with and surviving violence, abuse, and oppression.

A candlelight vigil to remember those still fighting, those lost to violence, and those surviving.

This event is open to men and women, who are survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, and their allies. This event is to be a safe place for those who need to speak about their experiences so they are not silent and not feeling alone.

Shatter the silence. Stop the violence.

Agenda

We will meet at 40th & Chestnut St, on the SE corner at 5:30. The march to 22nd & Chestnut will begin promptly at 5:45pm.  Feel free to bring banners or homemade signs for the march! Please arrive on time.

Cost

FREE

NOTE: There are marches beginning from 4 different locations, but I chose this one for the convenience of drivers. It'll be (relatively) easy to find parking, and if you don't feel like walking back after the rally, you can hop on SEPTA to get back to your vehicle.

Here are the TBTN march starting points:

North: 22nd and Fairmount Streets
South: 21st and Washington Avenue
East: 12th andChestnut Streets
West: 40th and Chestnut Street
