Longview, TX (City of Longview) — City of Longview, Partners in Prevention’s East Texas Anti-Trafficking Team, will host a Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event at Noon, on Thursday, April 25. The event will take place at the Longview Mall Center Court, 3500 McCann Rd. The international campaign is a playful way to draw attention to the serious issue of sex trafficking, domestic minor sex trafficking, and other sexualized violence.
Brenda Buck, City Liaison to the East Texas Anti-Trafficking Team states, “The Anti-Trafficking Team would like to invite anyone with an interest in raising awareness about sex trafficking to walk a lap, or a mile, in a pair of high heeled shoes. We are particularly interested in seeing men join in this event and wearing red pumps. Come out and participate. You may see some familiar male faces walking in high heeled shoes. It is sure to be entertaining and informative.”
