"Hear Me Now: A Take Back the Night Event" 2017 Submission Form

On Tuesday, April 25th at 7:30PM, the Harvard community unites to break the silence surrounding gender-based violence at "Hear Me Now: A Take Back the Night Event." Together, we create and hold space to speak out, listen, reflect, and move toward healing from all forms of abuse, exploitation, and violence. We hope you'll join us!

    Creating a New Submission

    "Hear Me Now: A Take Back the Night Event" believes deeply in the importance of individual agency with regard to sharing personal stories. Because of that, we believe that it is for you to choose what, when, where, how, and with whom you share your experiences. We invite you to share your story or your letter of support and encouragement to the survivors you love. Submissions will be read at the conclusion of our walk.

    A Note

    By providing the information below, our goal is to help you make an informed decision about how to share in the way that most resonates with your needs and wants. Public awareness events like this one, wherein people disclose incidents of sexual or gender-based violence are NOT considered notice to the University for purposes of activating its responsibility to investigate any particular incident(s). Providing details specific to a case or including personally identifying information in the piece may be perceived as compromising the integrity of an investigation, invalidating the confidentiality of a process, and/or may be misconstrued as retaliation if you are currently in an adjudication process (e.g. campus, criminal, civil). If you are not currently involved in an adjudication process, please know that a disclosure of personal identifying information about the person who caused harm may be grounds for civil legal action. We recognize that parts of this statement may be difficult or confusing. In service of supporting you as you navigate sharing your story, we invite a one-on-one conversation with OSAPR staff if you would like to talk further.
