Get Your Feet Wet Productions performed at Women Take Back The Night Rally. It was awesome to say the least. Everyone was very professional and informative. We would be honored to participate in any event given by the organization again. We would like to thank them for allowing us to be a special part of.

This organization is one of the strongest all-volunteer based groups I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. I am honored to be a part of this amazing group of activists, and am deeply grateful for the drive and passion of all it's members to end all forms of sexual violence.

Sacramento Women Take Back the Night (WTBN) is made up of a phenomenal group of dedicated volunteers. It offers members of the Sacramento community the opportunity to be involved in and lead efforts to end violence against women. Volunteers can be as involved as they want from attending and promoting the annual Take Back the night rally, to becoming an active member of the Planning Committee. Using its collective voice, WTBN also collaborates with and promotes other organizations in the Sacramento area that provide supportive and preventative services to our community. The group of WTBN volunteers is also open and welcoming to new members and new ideas. For example, WTBN is expanding its efforts by putting on a production of Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues" in April 2011 as part of V-Day 2011. WTBN motivates, excites, and challenges me and I recommend it enthusiastically as an organization- tiny budget, grassroots activism, and all!

Sacramento Women Take Back the Night has had consecutive rallies and marches to end violence against women annually for the last 35 years! This is the longest running Take Back the Night that we know of. I am so proud to be a part of this grassroots community based organization that strives to raise awareness locally about the effects of violence on our communities and to call for an end to it! Thanks for the work you do as well, it is inspiring!
