Join us On Friday, May 12th for our second annual Pace Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® campaign! This is a pledge based fundraising and public awareness campaign that sees participants literally walk a mile in high-heeled shoes in order to encourage dialogue around issues of sexualized violence against women. A Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event creates an atmosphere of openness and fun around subjects that can often be difficult to talk about while encouraging men in our communities to be allies in the fight against gender violence.
