Sign Up for Walk A Mile

For the THIRD time around, the Sisters of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. are proud to bring to campus "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes - The international Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence" along with Kappa Alpha Theta, Alpha Chi Omega, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., The Women's Center and Break the Silence.

First You Walk the Walk:
There is 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. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's a fun challenge that gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: gender relations and sexual violence.

We are also suggesting a donation of $3, all proceeds will go to Turning Point, Lehigh Valley's Domestic Violence Shelter that helps over 5,000 survivors of gender violence every year. 

The march will take place on Wednesday, April 23rd, starting on the UC front lawn at 4:10pm!
