The keynote speaker in the program this year is Ava Eichhorn, a UW-Green Bay student. Eichhorn is the first current student to give the keynote address for ‘Take Back the Night.’ The march though campus, led by the Phoenix Softball Team, will begin in the Phoenix Rooms and move through the tunnels. The night will end with a candle light vigil, where current student Kat Halfman will speak. Then, Jasmine Puls, SGA Health and Safety Chair, will have her piece of her poetry read to conclude the evening.
