Description: 

Women’s Crisis Support ~ Defensa de Mujeres would like to invite you to participate in Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Saturday, April 9th at Lighthouse Point on West Cliff Drive in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes ®: The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence is a nationwide event that invites families to participate in a one mile walk, literally in her shoes by wearing women’s high heels, to raise awareness around issues of rape, sexual assault, and gender violence. There is an old saying: "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks community members to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: gender relations and sexual violence.

Description: 

Come walk with us for a great cause! San Francisco Women Against Rape invites you to participate in our 3rd annual Walk Against Rape. As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Walk Against Rape will be held on April 19th, 2008. The walk is a celebration that empowers survivors, their friends, families and supporters, and serves to break the silence by walking together on the streets against rape, and declare that San Francisco will not tolerate sexual violence. It is a 3.1 mile walk starting at Justin Herman Plaza at 10am and culminating in a rally at noon in Dolores Mission Park. Walkers will arrive in the park to find festivities such as speakers, performances, the Clothesline Project on display, prizes for the highest fundraisers, several community organizations offering information and resources, and food and drink. At SFWAR, we believe that no single individual, organization, foundation, or business alone can stop the epidemic of sexual assault, but by responding as a whole community, we each bring our piece of the solution. This is where your participation counts! Join us as we make visible what has historically been silenced and invisible. For more information, please visit our website at www.sfwar.org  or call 415-861-2024.

MaleSurvivor Weekends of Recovery are open to any man, 18 or older, who been sexually victimized as child and/or as an adult. Sequoia Retreat Center is the location of our first 2009 Level I Weekend of Recovery. Nestled amid 200 acres of majestic coastal redwoods, madrones and tan oaks, the Sequoia Retreat Center provides us a beautiful setting in which each of you can take the risks necessary to make this weekend a significant one in your recovery. Sequoia, located in the Santa Cruz Mountains, is a privately owned retreat center, and the owners, Scot and Diane Myers-Lipton, want you to feel safe and comfortable and nurtured. Their philosophy is best reflected in this welcome: "Welcome to a place of reflection and dialogue. The Sequoia land has been held sacred since 1949 -- it is a place where love has been experienced, where pain has been transcended, and where hope has been born. The Sequoia Retreat Center is a place where the deepest meaning of life may be explored in an atmosphere of quiet and beauty. Our hope is that your stay here enriches your life, and the life of our earth that is our place in the universe. May you add to the spirit of love that builds and nourishes this sacred place, and return to your daily life renewed. The history of Sequoia is a history of seasons, beauty, spirit, and truth. This can never be communicated by facts or descriptions; it must be experienced first-hand. We look forward to your visit."
