On Friday, April 7, The Choice Insurance Agency team was proud to support the Walk a Mile in her Shoes to bring awareness to and end sexualized violence against women.  The local event was produced by the Norfolk YWCA, whose mission is to end racism and empower women.   As the website for the Walk a Mile in her Shoes explains, sexualized violence is:

“Not Just a Women’s Issue

Here Sexualized violence does not just affect women. It affects the men who care about them, their families, their friends, their coworkers, and their communities. Sexualized violence is epidemic. Some of the statistics: Every two minutes someone in America is raped. One in six American women are victims of sexual assault. That means someone you know, someone you care about, has been or may become the victim of sexual violence. It may be your mother, your sister, your friend, your girlfriend, your wife, your coworker or your daughter.”

Despite the brisk weather, the cause drew a huge gathering of people who supported the cause.  And while the event is called “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes”, we were glad that the walk was really .4 mile.  (Plenty of distance to get the idea!)
