Every year, Lauren’s Kids organizes something called “Walk in My Shoes” — survivors and advocates walk across the state of Florida to raise awareness about sexual assault.
“She walks during Sexual Assault Awareness Month to empower others to know that ‘It’s OK to Tell’ and it’s okay to heal from victim to survivor to thriver,” Claire VanSusteren told BuzzFeed. “When she reached the steps of the Florida Capitol on April 22, she walked 6,000 miles in the name of hope, healing and recovery.”
Here are 27 powerful messages from this year’s “Walk in My Shoes” event:
- Justice Antonin Scalia, the conservative heart of the U.S. Supreme Court for more than a decade, has died.
- Scalia was appointed to the court in 1986, a nominee of President Ronald Reagan. He was 79 years old.
