Announcement from Our Voice:

Symmetry Financial Group and Native Kitchen present the 9th Annual Walk A Mile Asheville Event, The People’s March to End Rape and Gender Violence. This fundraiser for Our VOICE takes place Saturday, June 30, 2018 at 10 a.m. at Pack Square Park.

Please join us and walk a mile through downtown Asheville in support of all people who have been impacted by sexual violence while making a stand to break the silence. This year, the focus of the event is not on the shoes or what you put on your feet, but instead is focused on walking together while recognizing that all people, regardless of gender, age, or background, are affected by rape, assault, and harassment. By walking (in everyday shoes or in another’s shoes) we are making a stand together in hope of creating a world free of sexual violence.

Online registration for the walk is now open. For more information, contact Our VOICE at 828-252-0562. Our VOICE’s 24-hour crisis line is 828-255-7576.
