Take Back the Night event
Wednesday, April 16, 2014
6:00 PM-12:00 AM

The sisters of Sigma Psi Zeta would like to invite you to the tenth annual Take Back The Night in honor of our national philanthropy to combat the violence against women and to spread awareness of domestic violence.

Domestic violence is the physical or sexual assault and abusive actions pursued by one intimate partner against another. Today, both men and women are still affected by domestic violence. In fact, 1 in 4 has/will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. Such actions lead to physical pain, irreversible mental damage, and often even death.

Contact Elizabeth Kwong (syzreluisant@gmail.com) or Stephanie Tran (syzedge@gmail.com) for more information.
