Steps to Stop Violence 2020: Total Steps Announcement


Together, we’re taking the steps to end domestic violence for good.

This Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we launched Steps to Stop Violence, a new awareness initiative as a partner to Take Back the Night (TBTN).

COVID-19 meant we weren’t able to take to the streets together this year. Instead, we created this quarantine-friendly walk to replace the traditional march for TBTN and to keep the conversation going despite social distancing.

Together, 112 pledgers in our community took a total of

379,707 steps.

That’s a total of over 189 miles!
