NAPLES, Fla - Victims of sexual assault are "Taking Back the Night." The annual event was held at Lowdermilk Park in Naples. The event is a chance for survivors of rape and violent crimes to speak out against violence.
Project HELP and the Collier County Sheriff's Office both teamed up to give survivors the confidence to move forward.
Eileen Wesley, Victim Services Coordinator for Project HELP says, "when someone is victimized their power and control is taken away from them. Tonight is a chance for them to take it back."
Tshirts designed by survivors hung on clothes lines. Project HELP is a 24 hour rape crisis center. Their services are free and confidential.
