Ninth Annual Northwest Arkansas Take Back the Night March
As the culmination of the month, the ninth annual Northwest Arkansas Take Back the Night March will be held on Friday, April 15. Gathering will begin at the Arvest Plaza on the Fayetteville Square with opening remarks at 7 p.m. by Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan, who will read a proclamation. Participants will march to the University of Arkansas via East Avenue, Dickson Street, and up through the lawn of Old Main to the re-gathering place in the courtyard between the Arkansas Union and Mullins Library. At the re-gathering, a candlelight vigil will be held in remembrance of and honoring the survivors of sexual and relationship violence. Additionally, inspirational words and songs along with a speak-out will occur to allow all to have a voice as the participants unify against violence against women. The Fourth Flag Project will remain on display that evening for participants to view after the march.
