University of Louisville, Red Barn
The 2013 Take Back the Night (TBTN) will be held on Tuesday, September 24th from 5:30-7:30 at the UofL Red Barn. Our keynote speaker this year is Susan Burke. Susan Burke is an experienced litigator. During the course of her 24-year legal career, Susan has both defended and prosecuted civil actions involving a wide range of topics. Ms. Burke is spearheading a nationwide series of lawsuits designed to reform the manner in which the military prosecutes rape and sexual assault. Her work on this project is the subject of a documentary premiering at Sundance called The Invisible War. http://invisiblewarmovie.com/  We will be screening The Invisible War at the Floyd Theater at 2:30 pm on the 24th. The Invisible War is a groundbreaking investigative documentary about the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. Focusing on the powerful stories of rape victims, this film chronicles the struggles to rebuild their lives and fight for justice. It is a call for our civilian and military leadership to listen…and to act!
