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:
- The Women's March on Washington was one of the largest protests in the city's history.
- Trump's spokesman held a press conference to blame grass coverings for "minimizing" the crowd at the inauguration 🤔
- Members of the national security community reacted with shock after Trump used a visit to CIA headquarters to attack his critics.
- "SNL" featured a shirtless Vladimir Putin celebrating America's newest President.
