On Thursday, the annual Take Back the Night march took place, followed by a gathering in Gloucester’s Younity Center. The event was organized by a local group of activists, therapists, and volunteers in an effort to raise awareness about sexual assault and domestic abuse.  The event after the march featured a night of poetry, music, and speeches relating to sexual assault, all performed by members of the community.
