Victoria (Women's)* Sexual Assualt Centre and Vancity invite you to the 8th Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes ®
Sunday, May 25, 2014 | 2-4pm Spirit (Centennial) Square
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! All funds raised from this event will go directly towards Victoria Sexual Assault Centre's commitment to ending sexualized violence through advocacy, counselling, empowerment and prevention education. Thank you for your support!
What is Walk a Mile in Her Shoes?
Originally created as a walk to bring men together to end sexualized violence, Victoria's Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks men alongside their communities to walk one mile wearing shoes of their own (or fancy shoes with heels if they choose) to raise funds and awareness for the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre. It’s fun and it gets everyone talking about something that’s really difficult to talk about: sexualized violence.
Why does the Sexual Assault Centre organize the event?
Change happens when people work together. The action of walking in solidarity is a clear message that we, as a community, will not tolerate sexualized violence and are ready and willing to work for change. It’s time to speak out and break the silence that surrounds sexualized violence.
