What are the 10 Points of Light? 

On the last Thursday in April each year for Sexual Assault Awareness Month, The Take Back The Night Foundation holds a worldwide event in support of survivors of sexual violence, 10 communities located in diverse communities, campuses, and schools throughout the United States and around the world serve as Points of Light forming a bright beacon of hope and healing for those who have been hurt.

Our 10 POL’s host empowering speakers, musical performance, speak-outs, poetry slams, walks, runs, yoga events, candlelight vigils, art displays and more!  Each location has its own unique agenda.

Each year our visibility and reach is growing. In the past, some of our locations have had celebrities attend, speak, and perform.  Justin Prentice of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why participated in one of our recent events.  We anticipate support and participation from #MeToo artists, actors, and musicians.
