Flyering and Flowers!

Some exciting updates from your WTBN team:

We hope to have a finalized rally flyer by this Friday August 12 for printing and distribution this Saturday August 13.  So… we need volunteers for flyering this 2nd Saturday, August 13 and future dates.  This Saturday, the group will meet at Mondo Bizarro at 5:45pm then flyer from 6pm-9pm or until the flyers are all gone.  WTBN Committee members Maryanne, Sunny, and Kamila will be there at 5:45pm, so look out for them!

Stay tuned for other flyering dates and an electronic version of the flyer!

This year Sacramento Women Take Back the Night and rally participants will commemorate individual women who have been victims of violence, both locally and in the lives of event attendees, by creating, displaying, and carrying paper flowers during the event and march.
We invite you to contribute to the Victims’ Memorial by creating a wide variety of tissue paper flowers to donate to the event. We request that the flowers be in purple and teal hues… (colors that represent Domestic Violence and Sexual Assualt Awareness) and use pencils as bases for the stems. Floral tape is a cheap and easy way to attach the flowers to the pencils to create a sturdy green stem.
Please refer to these tutorials:
Rose
Mum
Lily (using a golf ball) and various petal flowers

Bring your completed flowers to the Rally on October 8 or contact us to donate them beforehand.

Thank you and let us know if you have questions!

Welcome

Welcome to the revamped website of Sacramento Women Back the Night!

We are gearing up for an exciting Take Back the Night Rally on October 8, 2011.  The Rally will be held on a bustling Second Saturday and will be an evening of remembrance, celebration, and action to stand against all forms of violence against women and children.   In particular, Sacramento Women Take Back the Night takes a stand against sexual assault and domestic violence, which is why each year we hold the Rally during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Want to join us in planning the 2011 Rally?  Sacramento Women Take Back the Night Planning Committee meetings are every Tuesday at 6:30pm at Mondo Bizarro Cafe located at 1827 I Street – See Events Calendar for more information.  We are also looking for volunteers, dynamic speakers, and organizations to co-sponsor the event.  For more information, please contact us at: [email protected].

In Solidarity,
