In Her Shoes

This is an interactive workshop is offered by request and works best in a group setting. In Her Shoes is designed for learning about domestic violence. Participants move, do, think and experience the lives of domestic violence survivors. Participants are given a card describing the background and current situation of a character. As groups are led to different stations, they read through scenarios their character faces with their partner and various systems, and make choices about their character’s next steps. This experience lead communities to shift their thinking about domestic violence and evolve their practices around what it really means to support survivors, hold those who cause harm accountable, and envision a world where violence and abuse don’t flourish as they do now.
