‘Take Back the Night’ held in person after two years

“When we deny our stories and disengage from tough emotions, they don’t go away; instead, they own us, they define us. Our job is not to deny the story, but to defy the ending—to rise strong, recognize our story, and rumble with the truth until we get to a place where we think, ‘Yes. This is what happened. This is my truth. And I will choose how this story ends,” a speaker at SU’s ‘Take Back the Night” used the Brene Brown quote to perfectly sum up the night. ‘Take Back the Night,’ an annual event from the PAGE Center, Domestic Violence Services of Cumberland and Perry County (DVSCPC), Women in Need and YWCA Carlisle and Cumberland Co., was held on Tuesday, April 19 in the CUB MPR.
