Event Details


Take Back the Night Toronto 2017 will be held on: FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 15, 2017

The Toronto Rape Crisis Centre/Multicultural Women Against Rape in collaboration with Survivors living with disabilities– Toronto is pleased to announce its 36th annual Take Back the Night event happening on Friday September 15th, 2016 at Ryerson Student Union located at 55 Gould St. (at Dundas and Yonge)

This year’s theme is about centering the lives and experiences of survivors who self-identify as living with various disabilities which include but are not limited to physical disabilities, mobility disabilities, cognitive disabilities, learning disabilities, mental health as disability. We operate within the independent living philosophy while empowering survivors with disabilities to be leaders in their own lives.

People living with disabilities have higher rates of trauma and violence in our community. For many reasons these incidents are underreported and often unidentified by the individual and the community as a whole. One of the biggest barriers to people living with disabilities is not physical barriers but attitudinal ones. This years Take Back the Night will mobilize this community into taking action!

We welcome Trans people, genderqueer people, 2Spirit people, non-binary people and cisgender women living with disabilities and non-disabled community members/representatives of community
