Join Northamptonshire Rape Crisis as we bring back Reclaim the Night. On Thursday the 25th November at 6pm we will take to the streets in Northampton to raise our collective voices against sexual violence and harassment.
This is our 9th year of marching for change and an end to sexual violence.
Reclaim the Night is an opportunity for everyone to get involved and speak out against gender-based violence.
Bring banners, drums, megaphones, placards, friends, songs, chants….
This year we will join with the Mayor Cllr. Rufia Ashraf for a Candlelight Vigil at All Saints Church, to remember those who have suffered at the hands of domestic abuse.

We encourage you to follow current Covid guidance and to maintain social distancing at the event. Anyone experiencing Covid symptoms should remain at home and follow our march on social media.
If you are unable to join us please place a candle in your window to remember all those impacted by sexual violence.
Reclaim the Night takes place across the world each year during 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence, which runs each year from 25th November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) until 10 December (International Human Rights Day).
This year Northamptonshire Rape Crisis is marking 35 years of providing free counselling and advocacy support across Northamptonshire to those impacted by rape, sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse.
