Walk a Mile in Her Shoes

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is an international men's march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence. There is an old saying "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." This event asks men to do just that, walk a mile in women's high-heeled shoes. This event is a playful way to raise awareness about gender relations and men's sexual violence against women.

Beacon Center is sad to announce our 8th Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes for April 24th, 2020 is CANCELLED due to the COVID-19 outbreak! 

Next year's Walk a Mile in Her Shoes 2021 event-date is soon to be decided. Stay tuned!

Although our event is cancelled, you can learn more about the award-winning march by visiting https://www.walkamileinhershoes.org/. April is sexual assault awareness month, show your support for victims and survivors by reading about Walk a Mile in Her Shoes and Beacon Center's mission.

We will be thinking about our clients, volunteers, and supporters during this time. Stay safe and healthy, everyone! If you have questions, call 605-886-4304. Thank you for your support and understanding!
