Join Elizabeth Freeman Center's 9th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender Violence!
Five domestic violence murders in three years have rocked Berkshire County and are tragic reminders that every case of domestic violence can be a matter of life and death. #Metoo continues to raise survivor voices exposing the horrifying levels of sexual violence and demanding accountability and change.
WE IN THE BERKSHIRES ARE TAKING ACTION! Violence is preventable! For our children, families, neighbors, co-workers, our community- JOIN US!
On September 19, 2019, hundreds of passionate community members will take to the street, donning symbolic footwear, to literally walk one mile down North Street united to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence. We gather at the corner of North Street and Columbus Avenue. Participants can register online. People can also register on the day of the event beginning at 5:00 pm. Look for the many red tents. There is no entry fee to walk, but participants are encouraged to raise funds to support Elizabeth Freeman Center's services to address and stop sexual assault and domestic violence.
All are welcome to participate- people of all ages, races, ethnicities, gender identities, and abilities.
Violence affects us all... our children, our friends, our neighbors, our coworkers, our community, and our future. Come add your voice (and your feet!) to those calling for change. Together we are making a difference. EFC depends on these much-needed funds. Let's make 2019 the best Walk a Mile yet!
