October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. For me it is an opportunity each year to reflect on a number of domestic violence victims I have known and worked with in the past. It is also a reminder that this issue is still alive in our country and that awareness and education are still needed.
As a part of the National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Tahoe Women’s Services is sponsoring “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes.” This event is a mile walk open to men. Each registered man will be given a t-shirt and a pair of high heels to complete the walk in around the Village Center at Incline Village. While the event is open to men only, women are encouraged to attend and support those men brave enough to participate. The walk starts at 1:00 p.m. on October 16, 2010.
I personally love this event as it is an opportunity for the community to see that violence against women groups are not just about women, but include the support of many men. If you are interested in participating or just attending and watching the fun, more information on registration can be found at the Tahoe Women’s Center website http://tahoewomenservices.org/index.php?cId=5&eId=64
