We are having our National Men's Walk Against Domestic Violence that day and we'd like to have some help with the walk. The theme is "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" and it can get pretty silly with the men dressing up, but this great photo opportunity always attracts great media attention to the very serious theme of gender-based violence. What volunteers may do: Make signs that help onlookers understand what the march is about (it's not just silly outfits, but a way to think about things from another person's point of view), pass out educational materials along the march route, carry signs in the march. If we have extra time there may be some other things the group can help with, such as organizing or helping sanitize things for the childcare center. Male volunteers' dressing up in high heels is NOT required, but neither is it discouraged. Any men or women who support our mission of empowering women and ending gender-based violence are welcome at this event. We do suggest that anyone who volunteers for the YWCA take a little time on our website to get to know us and what we do in the community. We look forward to getting to know you too!
