Its founder, Frank Baird, created "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" in 2001 "to create a unique and powerful public experience that educates individuals and communities about the causes of men's sexualized violence against women, provides them with prevention and remediation strategies and empowers them to further develop and implement these knowledges and skills interpersonally and politically," according towww.walkamileinhershoes.org.

Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. The first 100 participants will receive a free T-shirt. All participants are invited to remain after the walk for a free concert and food.
