What is Walk a Mile about?
It’s more than just high heeled shoes. It is an opportunity to raise community awareness and to get people talking in a safe environment about sexual assault and gender-based violence. This is an ugly topic, but so important to discuss. Because a problem that stays hidden can never be solved.
Sexualized violence does not just affect women. It affects the men who care about them, their families, their friends, their coworkers, and their communities. Sexualized violence is epidemic. Some of the statistics: Every two minutes someone in America is raped. One in six American women are victims of sexual assault.That means someone you know, someone you care about, has been or may become the victim of sexual violence. It may be your mother, your sister, your friend, your girlfriend, your wife, your coworker, or your daughter.
