Thursday, April 16th was UMBC’s 3rd Annual Take Back The Night speak-out and march. We had an amazing turn out and we couldn’t have done it without everyone’s hard work and support!
We had signs that were made by community members, staff, student organizations, and Greek life!

Staff member, Yoo-Jin Kang and Peer Health Educator, Kayla Smith, were the student emcees and march leaders this year!
Community listening to the Speak-Out
The march made a huge impact on campus. We were even invited to march through the dining hall!
After the Speak-out, the community was invited to hang out together, craft for a cause, and enjoy some lemonade and cookies before leaving the event.
What an awesome night!
Just a reminder for those who might not have been able to attend, there are many resources available to you, both on and off campus.
