Students walk in the Take Back the Night rally in front of the Union on Thursday.

Despite frigid temperatures, about 100 students and community members marched through the streets of Ann Arbor on Thursday night to “take back the night” and raise awareness for sexual assault on college campuses.

Though Take Back the Night is believed to have originated in 19th-century London when women marched for safer streets, it has since evolved into an international movement of over 1,000 annual marches and rallies. These events, such as the one in Ann Arbor, work to provide a safe place for survivors of sexual assault to come together and share their stories.
