The Women’s Resource Center is again holding an event called Walk a Mile in her Shoes to support the Safe Haven. Executive Director Colleen Arnold says the event raises money and awareness. She explains it’s an international men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence. She says it’s an effective way to get people involved adding it’s a serious subject but the walk provides an ice breaker to get the message out there. Arnold says they are looking for more men like those who participated in the past to send a strong message to other men and boys that violence against women must stop.
The walk will take place Friday, July 3rd at 4 o’clock starting at Pioneer Square. Pledge forms are available at the Women’s Resource Center and they have men’s shoe sizes 9 to 14 in red high heels for the men to walk in. For more information you can call them at 681-3105.
