Aperçu

Pace will present Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®: The International Men’s March to stop rape, sexual assault, and gender violence. This is an annual fundraising and public awareness event that sees men literally walk a mile in women’s high heeled shoes to raise community awareness around issues of men's sexualized violence against women.

This event aims to create a fun atmosphere in order to engage the community in dialogue around issues of sexualized violence against women, a subject that can be difficult to talk about. It is also meant to draw attention to the work Pace does within the community in both education and supporting victims of trauma and sexual assault.
