'Take Back the Night' Returns

By Sam Miller
The Victim’s Intervention Program of Wayne and Pike Counties held their annual Take Back the Night event last night. Gathered at the steps of the Wayne County Courthouse, VIP, County Officials, and guests from the public came together to honor the courage of survivors, and the memories of victims. Several survivors spoke at the event, which is part of VIP’s recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Take Back the Night had been cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and delayed by rain this year. While rain was in the forecast, the event wrapped up before last night’s storms.
