Taking Back the Night

The Illinois Imagines Awareness Collaboration Team, in conjunction with Freedom House and Gateway Services and a host of other agencies, sponsored a Take Back the Night vigil at Soldiers and Sailors Park in Princeton. The purpose of the event was to bring awareness to the fact that women with disabilities are four times more likely to have been sexually assaulted in the last year than women without a disability.
