    Walk a Mile in Her Shoes

The walk will begin and end at Plaza de Cesar Chavez, downtown San Jose. Sponsorship Reception will take place at the Fairmont Hotel, downtown San Jose. In an effort to raise awareness to the issue of sexual assault, community leaders, businessmen, students, and residents will walk one mile in women's high heeled shoes through Downtown San Jose.
