Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®

An International Men’s March to End Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender Violence®

Each year an ever-increasing number of men, women, and families are joining this award-winning walk as a unique way to raise awareness in their communities about the serious causes, effects, and remediation to domestic and sexual violence. In this walk we ask men to literally put themselves in women’s shoes to raise awareness and show their support against gender violence.

The Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Committee of Anoka County, a collaboration of Anoka County community agencies, asks you to stand up to domestic and sexual violence by participating in Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®. This walk will take place at Anoka City Hall Plaza on May 20, 2017. Proceeds from this walk will benefit the Alexandra House.
