Are you man enough to "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes?" Did you know that 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men experience sexual violence other than rape and 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men have been raped in their lifetime? Let's rally together to change those staggering statistics and raise awareness to the issue of sexual assault in our community. Join us for the 10th Annual YWCA Silicon Valley Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®!
On Wednesday, April 18, 2012 community leaders, businessmen, students and residents will "walk a mile" in women's high heeled shoes through the streets of downtown San Jose. The walk will begin at 5 p.m. and start and end at Plaza de Cesar Chavez Park. Join us to raise awareness and funds to assist in supporting the YWCA Silicon Valley Rape Crisis Center.
