BENEFITING: Call for Help, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2016
One in seven American women are victims of sexual assault. That means someone you know, someone you care about, has been or may become the victim of sexual violence. It may be your mother, sister, friend, girlfriend, wife, coworker, or daughter. We are committed to helping victims and their families heal from the trauma of sexual assault.
There is an old saying; "You can't really understand another person until you've walked a mile in their shoes." Walk a Mile in Her Shoes asks you to literally walk one mile in high heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but its fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: gender relationships and sexual violence.
The Sexual Assault Victim's Care Unit at Call for Help, Inc. has served the community for over 40 years. They work to help victims heal from sexual trauma and educate the community on sexual violence issues.
