If these were ordinary times, we would be looking forward to joining you, and the entire community, walk a mile wearing shoes of every kind...
Spunky high heels
Spray-painted construction shoes
Glossy boots….and more!!
But unusual times, call for unusual ways of togetherness, and so…
YWCA Walk A Mile In Her Shoes is going VIRTUAL!
56 HOURS TO WALK YOUR MILE....
...because in California, a sexual assault happens every 56 minutes.
The Walk remains a fun, interactive, slightly competitive, way to make our community safer, more inclusive and the best place to live in and raise the next generation.
Walk A Mile In Her Shoes is aimed at raising awareness about gender based violence and committing to ending violence against all individuals who identify as women. And we are going virtual to fulfill our commitment to our community’s health and safety.
