Rally and March Against Gender Violence at Sept. 25 Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
Men, boys, women and girls are invited to join the rally and stroll on Sept. 25, 2019 when the 9th annual Memphis Walk a Mile in Her Shoes steps off.
Uniting men in the push to stop rape, sexual assault and domestic violence, the event will begin at 5:30 at the Ramesses II statue on Central at the University of Memphis. Dozens of pairs of women’s shoes and signs will be available for walkers — or bring your own.
After a rally at 6, the Walk will stretch west on Central to Highland, north to Poplar, east to DeLoach and back to the statue plaza. Registration minimum is $10; UM students walk free with ID, other students with ID walk for $5. Free T-shirts will be given to the first 200 to register.
Sponsors are Memphis Area Women’s Council, Memphis Says NO MORE, SAPAC (Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Coalition), Splash Creative and the University of Memphis.
More than 250 people walked last year! This year’s event launches the annual domestic violence prevention calendar that centers on National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.
Pre-registration is available, or register in person!
