In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Oakton Community College will hold a Take Back the Night Rally and Candlelight Procession at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, at the main lobby of the Des Plaines campus, 1600 E. Golf Road.

For more than three decades, Take Back the Night, a charitable organization, has focused on eliminating sexual violence in all forms, and thousands of colleges, universities, women's centers, and rape crisis centers have sponsored events across the country.

The Oakton rally will include testimony by victims as well as information about support services.
