BOLINGBROOK – Take Back the Night of Northern Will County is getting a makeover. 

Organizers have affiliated with the national Take Back The Night organization and have changed the local chapter name to Citizens Against Abuse. The group's mission to educate the community about domestic violence remains, according to a release.

Citizens Against Abuse invites the community to its 15th annual rally and march this Thursday at 5 p.m. at the DuPage Township Levy Center, 251 Canterbury Drive in Bolingbrook. The march will begin at 8 p.m., weather permitting, and will extend to the Veterans Memorial in front of Bolingbrook Village Hall.

This year’s keynote speaker is Will County State Attorney James Glasgow, who will address the topic of new legislation in Illinois and its effect on women in domestic violence situations.
