Sexual Assault Awareness Month is just around the corner and the Walk A Mile In Her Shoes® event is taking place Wednesday April 12 at the Quad at ULM. Registration will begin at 3:30 p.m., and the walk will start at 4 p.m. This event was so well received and the vigil that followed last year’s walk so incredibly powerful and moving. There will be a vigil immediately following the 2017 walk as well. Please spread the word to all of your colleagues, friends and family to join us this year.

The purpose for Walk A Mile In Her Shoes® is to show support and solidarity for survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence and a desire to end the violence. Anyone may walk in support of this effort- students, faculty, staff, and members of the community, males, females, heels or no heels. Of course, all of these walkers will need supporters to cheer them on from the sidelines as well! Please contact Melanie Clark at The Wellspring, 323-1505 or  or Jaleesa Harris at ULM 342-1120. Please leave your name, phone number and email address so any updates may be sent to you. There is no cost to register.

Sign-in begins at 3:30 at the table in the Quad. The walk begins at 4:00. I look forward to seeing you all there!
