    Sister Solidarity Month honors Womxn's History Month in March by hosting a series of events to shed light on issues facing womxn-identified folks. Through Sister Solidarity Month, we celebrate the importance of women’s activism and highlight their contributions to our society. Previously, our events for Sister Solidarity has focused on feminist and the social justice approachs to art collectives, the Israeli occupation of Palestine and its connection to prison industrial complex and borders. We honor all womxn across all spectrums of experiences by centering voices that are often marginalized in larger women's movements, such as women of color, transwomen, queer women, disabled women, and incarcerated women.

    Take Back the Night is an international event and non-profit organization with the mission of ending sexual, relationship, and domestic violence in all forms. Take Back the Night at UCSC takes place in the month of April, which is also Sexual Assault Awareness Month and usually begins with educational workshops, healing spaces, followed by a rally & march, keynote address, and a surivior speaker out throughout the month. The Women's Center aims to end the epidemic of sexual violence by centering survivors, and cultivating spaces of healing, movement, and empowerment. Acknowledging the different layers of violence, oppression, identities and vulnerbilities, that are complex factors contributing to sexual violence, we hope to create a space of education and healing from truamas.
