Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
STAR (Standing Together Against Rape) a non-profit organization that provides options, support and information to Alaskans affected by sexual violence sponsors this annual event, which is held around world. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is an international men's march to stop rape, sexual assault, and gender violence. Participants are encouraged to “strap on” a pair of high heels and join others to raise awareness about the serious causes and effects of sexualized violence. APDEA and APD have been successful in putting together teams and raise money for STAR, blisters and all. The Anchorage Police Department has supported the teams by allowing them to wear police uniforms with high-heels during the event.
