Benefiting Merrimack County Task Force Against Domestic Violence
There’s an old saying: “You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.” Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks men to literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes.
You don’t have to wear high-heels, but it’s part of the fun, and it gets the community to talk about something that’s really difficult to talk about: domestic & sexual violence. W.A.M. 2017 is not just for men and boys. Everyone is invited and welcome to raise awareness about these critical issues.
Join us on October 4, 2017 On Main Street in Downtown Concord (State House Arches) as we proudly proclaim:
“NO MORE!– Not in our community, not in our society!”
And Walk a Mile in Her Shoes.
