Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
Get Ready to Walk! And Shed Light on Violence Against Women
The YLS has teamed up with Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® to organize a unique walk for men through Chicago's Loop. Men are invited to literally walk one mile through Chicago's Loop in women's high-heeled shoes (women are invited to participate and support the male walkers). The event aims to raise awareness about the cause and effects of sexualized violence and will be a fun way to get people talking about a very difficult subject.
Bring your friends, bring your colleagues!
SCHEDULE (subject to change):
5:30-5:40 p.m. -- Between Friends, our cosponsor of the event is a nonprofit agency dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic violence and building a community free of abuse. A representative from Between Friends will address the crowd and get the walk underway.
