Get your capes and feet ready...It's coming!!!

WAVI is combining our annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoe Awareness Walk with our Power of Purple Information event.
This combined event will kick off Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October!

Register to Walk Button
Walk A Mile in Her Shoes® draws families and friends who are passionate about our community, equality, and supporting women, wives, daughters, mothers, sisters, nieces, and granddaughters. It is a dramatic opportunity to raise awareness in our community about the serious causes, effects, and remediations of men's sexualized violence. We will provide shoes, capes, or you can bring your own! We highly encourage hero-themed attire!
So...are YOU "man" enough to Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® with WAVI? Register to walk here. It's FREE!

The Power of Purple is a tabling event for community partners to honor, provide support, and
highlight services to survivors of domestic violence. Sign up to host a table here
