Take Back the Night Hamilton 2017


‘Until all of us have made it none of us have made it.’ – Rosemary Brown

Take Back the Night, an annual event organized by SACHA, is a powerful opportunity for survivors and their supporters to actively build connections, assertively reclaim our right to safety, and courageously stand up against violence.

TBTN centers the experiences of women and gender non-conforming folks. We invite men to cheer on the march from Gore Park.

This year’s event will include giant puppets, community tables, drumming, sign making, music, pre-march stretching & warm-ups, some surprises and, of course, a loud and empowered march!

Where: Hamilton City Hall – 71 Main Street West, Hamilton ON

6:00pm – We Gather
7:00pm – We Rally
7:30pm – We March

More info:

We will have both an HSR and a DARTS buses following the march for folks who are not able to march.

If you are not able to march the entire route there is a short cut back to City Hall at Summers Lane near the Hamilton Convention Centre. There will be a TBTN marshal waiting there to walk with folks back to City Hall.

Join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #TBTN2017.

Tell the World About SACHA


We are in ♥♥♥ with Hana Shafi’s art and are ecstatic that she designed two new SACHA posters!!!


Sadly, most folks in Hamilton have never heard about SACHA. They don’t know about our forty plus years of work to support survivors and end violence and oppressions.

Spreading the word about SACHA is like first aid training: you don’t think that you’re going to need it, but you do it just in case.

How you can help #ShowYourSACHASupport:

  1. Print off a copy if you have access to a printer. If you have some cash to pay for printing, we really like SACHA supporter Copy Dog. If you’d like Copy Dog to print some posters, you just need to email them – info@copydog.ca – the number and which poster you’d like printed (black or purple background). They already have the files ready to print!
  2. Pick up some posters at SACHA. Let us know to expect you by emailing us at sacha@sacha.ca!
