Speaking at a “Take Back the Night” rally

One of the more humbling experiences I have had in my life was speaking at a “Take Back the Night” rally at Syracuse University in NY. For those who don’t know, this is an international event that calls to end rape and other forms of violence. I spoke about violence in the Congo and how we need to move from the misogynistic messages we see every day. If we take back the misogyny from the day, we won’t have to take back the night. Lastly, I urged those in the audience who are being silent about the abuse they may have experienced to speak up because they could be saving lives. After the rally, we went into the church where students revealed touching stories about abuse, many of which were being shared for the first time.
