Thank you to everyone who joined our Steps to Stop Violence walk in support of survivors!
This Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we pledged to take 982 steps in honor of the 982 survivors we served in 2019.
Steps to Stop Violence is a new awareness initiative to replace the traditional march for 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 event to keep the conversation going despite social distancing. We announced the total number of steps taken at our virtual TBTN on Oct. 20.
Together, we took 379,707 steps.
112 pledgers walked a total of 189 miles to raise awareness for domestic violence here in the Mohawk Valley.
Thank you to everyone who pledged and walked with us. We hope you’ll join us again next year!
Level One: Steps to Stop Violence
In 2019, we provided domestic violence services to 982 individuals. We invite you to join us in pledging to take 982 steps before TBTN in recognition of our survivors.
(On average, 982 steps measures less than half a mile.)
Level Two: Step UP Against Violence
For 2020, we anticipate serving more than 1,800 survivors. Take on level two with Step Up Against Violence and commit to another 1,800 steps before Oct. 20!
(On average, 1,800 steps measures 0.85 miles.)
