Reclaim the Night is a women-led event fighting for the right of all women to be out on the street and in public spaces without fear or threat of violence.
Last year women in Coventry organised the first Reclaim the Night march in the city for 30 years. The event was a great success – and we hope to make next year’s march bigger and better.
Can you join us?
Reclaim the Night will take place on the evening of Saturday 7th March 2015 in Coventry City Centre. The march will be open to all women, and will be followed by a rally, speakers, performances and a party.
Are you a woman who cares about ending violence and the threat of violence for all women?
We want you!
We would love for you to come to our planning meeting and contribute to organising and shaping this year’s march. Our next meeting will take place on Thursday 2 October at 6.15 pm in the Jaguar Building, Gosford Street, Coventry University.*
At this meeting we will be setting up groups to work on different parts of the event – publicity, after party, rally, speaker invitations and so on. You could volunteer to organise or lead one of these working groups or just get involved in the ones which interest you.
If you don’t have the time on a regular basis but still want to get involved we also need women who can help with a range of tasks – from designing and distributing flyers to organising and contacting speakers, painting banners, stewarding or even performing on the night – most of all we need women who want to be a part of this project to reclaim the night!
Even if you can only offer a few hours we would be very grateful. Don’t worry if you have never been involved in anything like this before – we are a friendly group and you would be made very welcome.
We hope to see you there.
Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you can attend.
If you have any questions, if you want to stay up to date with the project or if you can’t make that time but would still like to be involved then please drop us a quick email and we will add you to our mailing list and let you know what we are up to and answer any questions you may have.
