Winnipeg Take Back the Night 2009

Friday, September 18, 2009 - 00:00 to 02:00

We will gather at Orioles Community Club (corner of St. Matthew’s Ave. and Burnell St.) at 7 p.m. on September 17. All people are welcome to attend!

Take Back the Night is an annual event held to raise awareness about violence against women and to reclaim the streets as safe for all. This year’s march is being held to address the issues of domestic violence, violence against sex-trade workers, and the ongoing crisis of missing and murdered Aboriginal women.

Refreshments will be served after the march and Orioles is a wheelchair-accessible site. Childcare bursaries are available (children are also welcome to attend) and bus tickets are available as well. Please contact Katie at 786-9788 if you would like more information.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
