Wawa Takes Back The Night

Wawa residents march to "Take Back The Night" this evening.

CHADWIC Home Executive Director Paula Valois explains the annual Take Back the Night event is a show of support for women who experience violence.

While there has been a greater societal focus on such violence - including from the #MeToo and Time's Up movements - Valois emphasizes that it's a much more widespread problem than just celebrities, politicians, and the business world.

Valois says it's an important cause to discuss.

Valois adds more can be done and that depends on speaking out.

Valois invites everyone to come out for Take Back The Night, meeting at Queen's Park by 7 o'clock, when opening remarks will be made before the march to the Community Centre.

She notes anyone who cannot make the walk can also meet the marchers are the Community Centre, where there will be speakers and art on display.
