A “Take Back the Night” event was held on the Tusculum College campus on Friday, April 29. Take Back the Night focuses on ending sexual violence of all forms and lending support to survivors. Speaking to the students about characteristics of healthy and unhealthy relationships was Kim Bushore-Maki, above, owner of Shakti in the Mountains, Women’s Center in Johnson City. A counselor, Bushore-Maki also addressed society’s sexual relations norms for each gender and the historic reasons for the differences. She encouraged the students to end unhealthy relationships and to communicate their feelings more fully to the person with whom they are having a romantic relationship. Erica Barenbaum, a Tusculum alumna who is now in veterinary school, shared her experience as a victim of sexual violence and encouraged the students to tell a counselor or other trusted person if they are the victim of sexual violence. The students also shared their own experiences of unhealthy relationships, being a victim or dealing with ignorance of others of these issues. Take Back the Night was sponsored by the Voices Against Violence student organization, Student Support Services and Counseling Services.
