This Walk A Mile in Her Shoes event will be the first global and DC March in history that will be held in multiple countries on the same day. The goal of this March is to raise awareness about the prevalence of domestic violence in the District and highlight the role of men in responding to and preventing this critical issue facing many women, men and children in our City.
To show their support, all participating men in the March will be wearing high heels - they will truly be walking in the shoes of domestic abuse victims. *** Women can show support by sponsoring a male friend, father, son and Men will also be able to have the option of walking in different types of shoes.
Those participating include local students, concerned citizens, local celebrities, professional athletes, and members of the Media. The March will also be highlighted internationally as a part of the Pixel Project and the International Walk A Mile in Her Shoes Initiative.
Last year, the DC Metropolitan Police Dept responded to more than thirty thousand domestic violence incidences. Countless more victims silently endured violence at the hands of a loved one. Though often not acknowledged, men are a critical link in ending domestic violence in our City.
Thank you so much and we hope you will join us on June 19th!
