    In Sault Ste. Marie ON, we have been marching since the mid 1980’s. The March encourages all supporters and survivors to move forward, providing hope and promise for survival. This is an occasion for woman to celebrate their strengths and courage, to channel their energy, commit to continue to work towards change and collectively shatter the silence of violence.

    Each year Take Back the Night event continues to increase in the number of participants as Sault Ste. Marie envisions a future where all persons can live without threat of violence.

    This year’s event will include:

    • Guest speaker
    • Drumming
    • A candlelight ceremony
    • Light refreshments to follow

    This year’s Take Back the Night March begins at Phoenix Rising Women’s Centre, 596 Wellington Street East at 6:30 pm on Thursday May 16th, 2019. The march will proceed from Wellington Street East towards Queen Street heading to the destination of Fire Station #1 (corner of Tancred & Bay Street).

    Please join us at:  Phoenix Rising Women’s Centre, 596 Wellington Street East

    The march symbolizes more than the goal of safe streets, but an end to violence period.
