TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

University of Arizona students are taking back the night to stop sexual assaults and rapes from happening in their community.

During the 2012 - 2013 school year, there were 11 sexual assault or rape reports on the U of A campus.  Students say that is too much.

On Tuesday students plan to march this afternoon at 5:30 p.m. to raise awareness.  The Health Services Center on campus wants to remind students there are resources available to anyone who might have been taken advantage of, including counseling. 

Event organizers say speaking up is difficult, but can be very beneficial.  Take Back the Night is not only for students, they are inviting the entire community to come out and speak out against sexual assaults. 

Tonight survivors of sexual assault and rape will also be telling their stories giving people a first-hand idea of the emotional and physical toll. 

A resource fair is also happening today, at 4:30 p.m. at the Women's Plaza of Honor on campus.  The March will happen shortly afterwards.
