LAS VEGAS - An event at UNLV is bringing attention to a serious, underreported crime. Take Back the Night aims at putting a stop to sexual assault and violence on campus.
The event will educate students, staff and faculty about the resources available to them. Organizers say they want to empower everyone on campus with information to prevent domestic and sexual violence.
Take Back the Night takes place Thursday from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., but help is always available.
UNLV has crisis support, medical, and counseling services. For example, the Care Line is a 24-hour campus hotline for victims and survivors.
The Student Health Center provides medical care, including: wellness exams, treatment for minor injuries and pregnancy tests.
UNLV Police are always on campus ready to respond to emergencies.
