Mary Baldwin University and New Directions Center, a Staunton shelter for battered women, invite the community to join them Thursday, October 30, to ‘Take Back The Night.’
Speaker Jeanine Woodruff from Virginian Aligned Against Sexual Assault will start the event at 6 p.m. on Page Terrace in front of Grafton Library. Following the speech will be a march around campus and then a speak-out in the Nuthouse, a student gathering place, on the first floor of Hunt Dining Hall.
