We talk about:

Our event this year
– What each of us think about the choices the Port Hope committee makes compared to the choices other groups make for Take Back the Night events (ie. the way we chose to involve men, not blocking off the streets, not involving police, choosing to celebrate coming together and not just to address the heavy vibes etc)
– What the theme “building community, building hope” means to us
– Why we’re each involved
– Why being involved in this event keeps us well

and more!
