Walk a Mile in Her Shoes’ at ABAC October 13

October 6, 2015

The annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event will be held at 6 p.m. on Oct. 13 on the front campus of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. This walk is sponsored by the ABAC Chapter of the Georgia Association of Nursing Students, Ruth’s Cottage and the Patticake House, and Verizon Wireless.

The international men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault, and gender violence is a one-mile circuit where men wear high heels and “walk a mile” in support of an end to sexual violence toward women.

Frank Baird created Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® in 2001. What began as a small group of men has grown to become a world-wide movement with thousands of men raising millions of dollars for local rape crisis centers, domestic violence shelters and other sexualized violence education, prevention and remediation programs.

For more information on this event, interested persons can call Rakia Watts at (229) 387-9697.
