Sexual Violence Awareness Week

Sexual Violence Awareness Week takes place during the third week of September each year. Community groups and members across the province host events and awareness campaigns during this week to provide information and education to the public around the issue of sexual violence.

Take Back The Night

As part of Sexual Violence Awareness Week, the NL Sexual Assault Crisis and Prevention Centre hosts the St. John’s Take Back the Night March on the 3rd Friday of September. The march is an organized public protest. It serves as a means for individuals to unite and voice the need to end sexual violence, fear, and victim-blaming.
