Peace­ful march puts fo­cus on vi­o­lence

Albany Advertiser - - NEWS - Jes­sica Cuth­bert

Men, women and chil­dren marched down York Street on Fri­day night for the an­nual Re­claim the Night.

The peace­ful march raises aware­ness about vi­o­lence and sexual of­fences against women and chil­dren, and is held across the coun­try.

Sur­vivors, vic­tims and loved ones who have lost some­one at the hands of abusers marched to take a stand against vi­o­lence against women and chil­dren.
