CDS is grateful to be able to support local Frederick, MD non-profit Heartly House at their 2022 Take Back the Night event held in Baker Park! Check out some photos from the event below, courtesy of Cody Cervenka and Heartly House.
Heartly House has been a staple organization of the Frederick community since 1979, providing comprehensive services to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and child abuse, without judgment or assumption. All services for survivors (hotline, crisis intervention, emergency shelter, legal advocacy, and representation counseling) are offered at no charge, thanks to the generosity of individual and corporate donations, foundations, grants, and most importantly the hard work and dedication of all the Heartly House staff and volunteers. Check out their website here for more information.
Take Back the Night Foundation is a non-profit organization with the mission of ending sexual, relational, and intimate partner violence in all forms. The TBTN event is the earliest worldwide movement to stand against sexual violence. TBTN events began in the 1960s in Belgium and England with protests about women not feeling safe walking down the street alone at night. In 1973, in the United States, a group of women at the University of Southern Florida dressed in black sheets, held broomsticks, and marched through campus demanding a women’s center. Check out their website here for more information.
These early protests and countless more since have sparked hundreds of events on college campuses and in communities of all sizes and locations, all hoping to bring awareness to sexual violence and provide support for victims. More and more communities have since joined the movement around the world to hold events related to their goals of support and awareness. We now reach millions of people each year!
