North Georgia Technical College will be hosting its first Take Back the Night event April 20 at 6 pm on the Clarkesville Campus in partnership with Circle of Hope and Rape Response. Take Back the Night is an international event and non-profit organization with the mission of ending sexual, relationship and domestic violence.
The free event at North Georgia Tech will include a candlelight vigil, keynote address, one-mile glow walk around campus and showing of the movie Wonder Woman. The event is open to the entire community and is appropriate for all ages.
Keynote address will be presented by Katie Koestner, the first woman in history to speak out nationally about being the victim of campus “date” rape. She appeared on the cover of TIME Magazine and was the subject of an HBO movie.
“This event is about awareness,” said NGTC Campus Life Director Sherry Seal. “We hope that people will come out and bring their whole family to hear about an issue that unfortunately does affect our community.”
