‘Walk A Mile in Her Shoes’ Returns May 30 in Athens
'Walk a Mile in Her Shoes' returns Saturday morning May 30, to Athens for the third year. It is a playful event that invites men in our community to help raise awareness causes and effects of sexualized violence.
As a part of the International Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence, men are literally asked to walk one mile in a pair of heels. It's a fun way to get the difficult conversation started about gender relations and sexualized violence. Registration is going on now at the East Texas Crisis Center.
Proceeds from the event will benefit victims' services at the East Texas Crisis Center in Henderson County. The deadline to register is May 1.
