Planning and Organizing is in Full Swing

Planning for the 10th Take Back the Night is in full swing.

Can you believe it’s been 10 years since we first took to the streets of Philadelphia to say “NO MORE” not just to take back the night, but for some to take back our lives and our right to feel safe 

We are hoping to make the 10th year of providing a safe space for people from all walks of life to come together in support and love our best year yet.  Together we will make it a night to remember


We love you..and can’t wait to see you again..and life is just better with you in it – If you would like to make a donation to help us finance this year please go to

We appreciate any support you can give, be it a few dollars or sharing our fundraising page

Keep in touch and as always remember your self care…

Update on our North Point meet up in regards to the NFL Draft and street closures:

North Point at 22nd & Fairmount in terms of meet up time & place, will remain the same as planned!  North point people should meet up at 22nd & Fairmount at 5:45 pm and our organizers assigned to that point will lead you in a small detour to avoid the street closures for the Draft. We will most likely be walking 2-3 blocks east to avoid the closures, before heading toward Center City. Your march point people will have a plan on the day of the event but please still meet at 22nd & Fairmount at 5:45 pm for North Point!!
Thank you,
TBTN Organizing Committee

Consent Video from Brown University

This is a pretty awesome, clear, informative video on “What is Consent”?

Some Highlights:
“Consent IS:
Active, not Passive.  
Fully engaged, and not just going along with it, 
Positively & clearly communicating intent. 

Consent is NOT:
“I don’t know if I want to”
If my partner is intoxicated or under the influence
If there is an absence of yes. 

How do you ask for consent?
Can I kiss you?
Is this okay?
Are you comfortable with this?
What do you like?

Its ALWAYS better to know you have consent and know what the person you are with likes and doesn’t like, then to run the risk of hurting, disrespecting, or triggering the person you are with. 
Educate yourself and your friends on the intricacies of CONSENT.
