Despite the rain, over a hundred people attended the INDIANA UNIVERSITY AT BLOOMINGTON Leadership Alliance “Take Back the Night” events, participating in a march, vigil, and speak-out to raise awareness of violence against women. The FMLA led the march down the main street with a banner that artistic members helped to design. The march received widespread support from community members and onlookers, with one campus fraternity showing a banner of support for Take Back the Night and with members standing out on their lawns applauding. Several members of community and campus press outlets were at the event, and Joelle Petrus, IU Bloomington FMLA Communications Coordinator was interviewed for a local radio station to talk about the group, the issues, and the event. The group’s Take Back the Night event made the cover story of the campus paper that week and was written about in the Bloomington Herald Times.
