The Gender and Sexuality Center is putting on Take Back the Night Week to bring awareness to sexual assault, victims and what can be done to stop the violence.

In the past GSEC has hosted Take Back the Night as a single night of slam poetry, breakout sessions and a candlelit march around Chico.

This semester they will be hosting events every night between April 20 to the 24 at the Bell Memorial Union and Selvester’s Cafe-by-the-Creek.

Emilee Hunt, the Women’s Program coordinator at GSEC, hopes that this week long awareness campaign will draw in more students than it has in the past.

“Our hope is to obviously reach survivors of sexual assault,” said Hunt. “We also are aiming to combat bystander intervention through our expanded events.”

The schedule for the week is as follows:

Monday: “Someone You Know” Film Screening & Discussion at 5:30 p.m. in BMU 203.

Tuesday: Michael Messner workshop at 6:00 p.m. in BMU 203.

Wednesday: “The Hunting Ground” screening and discussion at 6:30 p.m. in BMU 203.

Thursday: Take Back the Night at 6 p.m. in the BMU Auditorium and candle lighting and silent candlelit march from 9:00-9:30 p.m. at the Student Services Center Plaza.

Friday: Debriefing brunch at 11:00 a.m. at Selvester’s Cafe-by-the-Creek.
