In Their Shoes is a free, interactive event that actively demonstrates the difficult choices and decisions that a person experiencing domestic violence must make in their everyday life—from economic difficulty to keeping their children safe from physical violence. Participants can choose to walk through the simulation on their own or in small groups, and may work through the scenario at their own pace.
The interactive "exercise in empathy" concludes with an in-depth de-briefing with domestic and sexual violence advocates to talk through feelings or questions that might have arisen from the walk-through. The entire event takes about 30-45 minutes and crisis counselors will be on hand throughout the day.
Whether you are a student, faculty member, or community member, this event is perspective-changing and powerful. We welcome entire class groups to attend or providing in-class incentives for students to attend. Please contact Sara Blevins, email@example.com if you have any questions.
