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.
