PULLMAN – The 27th annual Take Back the Night march drew a sizable crowd Wednesday evening bringing together the Pullman and WSU communities in solidarity against violence.
The march began on the Glenn Terrell Mall – near the annual Clothes Line Project that displays hundreds of personal messages about how violence has affected many lives – and wound its way through campus, ending near Beasley Coliseum.
A short candlelight vigil followed the march, giving participants a moment to reflect on the effects of violence on the lives of victims, survivors, family, friends and the larger community.
Each year, more than 500 students, faculty, staff and community members take part in the march.
The Take Back the Night march is designed to demonstrate the commitment of participants to making the WSU Pullman campus and community a safe place for everyone. The march elevates the consciousness of the community in regard to the right of everyone to live, work and move about in a violence-free environment.
