  Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is a light-hearted way to raise awareness about
a serious issue, sexual assault and domestic violence — while raising funds to provide critical support services to survivors. Men from all walks of life including prominent business leaders, elected officials, professionals, educators and students join together and walk a mile in women’s shoes to demonstrate their support and commitment to ending violence and support YWCA Silicon Valley’s important work.

This October marks the 20th anniversary of YWCA’s Week Without Violence. Since 1995, this campaign has served to mobilize people in communities across the United States to take action against all forms of violence, wherever it may occur. Ranging from rich and complex dialogues on violence, to workshops, community service opportunities, and public awareness events, YWCAs have been at the forefront of the conversation on the pervasive and intersectional nature of violence and its impact on the communities they serve. This year, we focus our efforts on the critical issue of domestic violence.

Join us for Week Without Violence, October 19-23, as we start a dialog on #EndDVNow.
