Take Back the Night - The purpose of the Annual Take Back the Night is to bring together organizations, civic leaders, and individuals of Louisville and Jefferson County to protest violence against women and to promote awareness of the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors, which perpetuate this specific type of violence.
Week Without Violence - encourages communities to think and act towards a world without violence. Activities focus on raising awareness, promoting attitude change and positive actions to end violence and build peace. We believe we can build communities in which violence is not acceptable.
Thursdays in Black - is an international movement making public the many forms of "personal" violence. The campaign focuses on ways that the individual can challenge attitudes to rape and violence, and reinforces at both a personal and a public level that there is something wrong with a world that will allow the human rights of women, men and children to be abused. Wearing black on Thursday’s indicates a solidarity with victims of violence and a intention to create a community where we can all walk safely without fear of violence due to sexual orientation, political affiliation, gender or ethnicity. It shows that you want to be free!
