    Take Back the Night: Consent Culture and the Freedom to Change

    Take Back the Night: Consent Culture and the Freedom to Change

    Portland State University has been hosting a student lead Take Back the Night since 1999. Take Back the Night is an important community event due to the awareness that it sheds in solidarity with survivors during Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Take Back the Night has an extensive history in the US as well as globally. Portland State University's Take Back the Night is a space for students of all genders working to end gender based violence.

    Feminista Jones will the keynote speaker for Take Back the Night 2017! FJ is a mental health social worker, sex-positive feminist writer, and community activist from New York City. She is an award-winning blogger and author. For two years, she hosted a sex-positive feminist podcast called This Week In Blackness: After Dark, which discussed topics related to sex and sexuality, race, and feminism. She launched a global anti-street harassment campaign (#YouOKSis) and a National Moment of Silence protesting police brutality (#NMOS14), both of which received international media attention. For this work, she was awarded the 2014 Black Weblog Award for Outstanding Online Activism. Jones describes herself "as a post-modern sex-positive, Black feminist woman, which basically means that i'm multi-faceted, at least in my expression of myself and my embodiment of feminism. I exist in a new era of critical thinking and self-identification. I promote the positive aspects of sex, sexuality, and sexual liberation." #pdxtbtn

    Take Back the Night's signature is to include tabling from community and campus organizations, a rally and march, a clothesline project, a keynote speaker, performers, a vigil, and a survivor speak out. TBTN happens during Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April and will happen on April 13th, 2016.
