March | 1 in 3: Take a Walk with Me

1 in 3: take a walk with me

Starting April 1, we’re calling on our community to take a walk! Practice social distancing and wear a mask, and invite two friends, family members, neighbors, etc., to take a walk with you. The walk is a simple way to spread awareness about the extent of sexual assault in the United States by illustrating the statistic that one in three women will experience sexual assault in their lifetime.

Share your walks with us! If you participate in 1 in 3: Take a Walk with Me, take a photo during your walk and share with us on social media.
