Come join the AAUW Sacramento branch on Saturday, Oct. 8 for our third year of co-sponsoring the Take Back the Night rally and march through midtown. Take Back the Night aims to end sexual- and gender-based violence through awareness building and supporting agencies that provide services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

We are a part of the resource fair, which begins at 5:30 p.m. There is also programming in the same location until 7:30, when we break down the tables and prepare for the march through midtown at 8 p.m. AAUW marchers carry our banner and march along with the other participants in a show of support for women’s issues. It is a good way to become better known as many Second Saturday attendees visit our table to see who we are. We also network with other co-sponsor agencies.

If you can join us, please let Nancy McCabe, mccaben@comcast.net, know to expect you.
