WHITE RIBBON'S WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES
September 26 - October 2, 2020
Join White Ribbon's Virtual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, September 26 to October 2, 2020 to end gender-based violence, racism, and all forms of discrimination.
White Ribbon’s awareness-raising event, Walk A Mile in Her Shoes, is going virtual. Dust off your shoes from September 26 to October 2 for White Ribbon's Walk A Mile in Her Shoes: a walk to end gender-based violence, racism, and all forms of discrimination.
Let us work together to end gender-based violence, racism, and inequalities. With increased rates of domestic violence, sexual violence and harassment experienced at home and outside the home over the last few months, COVID-19 highlighted the inequalities women continue to face. This year we also heard the Black Lives Matter Movement call on all of us to commit to ending racism, sexism, and all intersecting forms of discrimination.
Between September 26 and October 2, wear your favourite high heels, or any shoes that symbolize your commitment to end violence against women, girls, and people of all genders. Walk in your neighbourhoods, parks, or workspaces, and share your solidarity and allyship online: tell us why you walk a mile in her shoes, and share photos and videos on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook using the hashtag #WhiteRibbonWalk.
What: A one-mile walk in heels or your choice of shoes, to stand up against gender-based violence, racism, and all forms of discrimination. Raise awareness through signs, decorated t-shirts, masks, or your choice of shoes.
Where: At your workplace, in your neighbourhood, school, park, and communities. Be sure to share your walk and join an online community of solidarity using the hashtag #WhiteRibbonWalk.
When: Choose a time between Saturday, September 26, 2020 and Friday, October 2, 2020. Walk anytime during that week, and share your experience with us on social media. At the end, we will come together on October 2nd for a virtual celebration of all the teams, participants, sponsors, and their walks. Stay tuned for more details!
How: Gather up some ideas about your walk, be in touch and we’ll help you implement it. Document your team’s walk and share your pictures, video, etc, with us through social media using #WhiteRibbonWalk and tagging us @whiteribbon (Twitter), whiteribboncanada (Instagram), whiteribboncampaign (Facebook), linkedin.com/company/whiteribbon (LinkedIn).
