Description: 

Flint, Michigan- On April 15th, men from all walks of life will walk one mile in women’s high heeled shoes through downtown Flint to protest rape, sexual assault & gender violence. Men from across Genesee County are scheduled to march, and will address participants at a pre-march rally. The event’s goal is to raise public Awareness of Sexual Assault and highlight the services offered by the YWCA of Greater Flint’s Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Services program.

WHO: Male community members and leaders will proclaim their solidarity with the rape prevention movement by marching in high heels, with women and children marching at their side. Educators, students, law enforcement officers, elected and appointed officials, and many others are expected to participate.

WHEN: The march is scheduled to begin at 6:00pm with registration starting at 5:30pm at the YWCA of Greater Flint. Men, women, and children are invited to participate and walk-in registrants are welcome. Men are encouraged (but not required) to walk in women’s shoes.

“One in three women has experienced gender violence in her lifetime. A woman is raped every 90 seconds in America,” said Frank Baird, Founder of the March. “That means someone you know, someone you care about has been the victim of sexual violence. This violence does not just affect women.” Inspired by the old saying, “You can’t understand a person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes,” men will literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes. Through its Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault program, the YWCA of Greater Flint offers comprehensive services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence including crisis intervention and emergency response services. The YWCA also provides education and prevention programming to community organizations and educational institutions.

If you have any questions, or to pre-register or order t-shirts, please contact Charlie Ford, Sexual Assault Response Team Coordinator, at (810) 238-7621 ext. 308 or at charlieford@ywcaflint.org.

Description: 

Advocacy is changing in our new Century. We are working with the multiple needs of women who are in crisis not only from domestic and sexual violence but who are troubled with criminal histories, educational defi ciency, joblessness, basic life skills, mental and physical health management and fi nancial literacy. This Institute will focus on recognizing the changing faces of survivors, and their multilayered and often multi-cultural needs that extends further than restoring survivors from the violence; it is rather holistic restoration, a thorough reconnection of all aspects of a survivors life; both positive and negative. Advocates will be challenged to re-evaluate their values and beliefs, re-defi ne advocacy that is not only empowering but doesn’t compartmentalize the survivor, re-energize the spirit in which advocacy is implemented, and fi nally be able to re-position our advocacy to not judge but value every experience of a survivor and have the courage to do the kind of advocacy that doesn’t fi t neatly in a box.
