Help Hamilton ‘Take Back the Night’ Thursday
It's a fairly small but significant march that happens every year in Hamilton.
Concerned citizens gather at Hamilton's Legion Park, across 2nd Street from City Hall, make signs, and then march down Main Street as part of the worldwide event - "Take Back the Night."
Organized by the Ravalli County Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, sign-making supplies will be available at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 27. At 7 p.m., for the 12th consecutive year, a short march will be held in downtown Hamilton.
Jamie Ogden said that, again this year, the march ends at the Bitterroot River Bridge, where there will be a short tribute to survivors, along with inspiration and some refreshments. The event is part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month
She reminded the public that SAFE (Supporters of Abuse Free Environments) has a 24-hour confidential crisis line for you or someone you know who needs support as the result of sexual violence.
The SAFE crisis line is 363-2793.
That's just part of what SAFE brings to the valley. Check their website.
