Walk a Mile in Her Shoes - for SARA!
WHEN: Thursday, April 1 12:48 pm
WHERE: Downtown Mall, Charlottesville VA
If you are a guy, or if you know a guy, then you have a chance to make
a difference in April, when a big group of men from our area will
march on the Downtown Mall in shoes typically worn by women – high
heels, ballet flats, you name it! It’s an attention-grabbing effort to
draw our community’s notice to the current epidemic of sexual assault
– 1 in 4 women and 1 in 8 men are sexually assaulted in their
lifetimes. This is not okay, and all genders have a huge role to play
in decreasing these numbers – as vital community leaders, allies,
friends, survivors, and change-makers! So take the first step, and get
a team together to walk against sexual assault. For more information,
and to register, please visit our website at http://saracville.org/walk10.htm
Sponsored by the Sexual Assault Resource Agency (SARA)
