Residents of Haliburton County are being asked to take a stand against sexual violence and harassment.

This is because the annual Take Back the Night event will be happening at the Haliburton Highlands Secondary School this Thursday at 7:00pm.

The candlelight vigil and walk welcomes survivors of sexual violence and harassment, their supporters, and allies.

The Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre and Fleming College says this event helps build a more healing and inclusive community.
