Why all the shoes and what’s the fit with abuse? Shoes are much about action as they carry us most places. The sole together with the entire shoe helps protect our feet through the journey, even as we search for direction. Ever need directions? You find the map or GPS that says, “You are here.” Well, such is life. Recognizing where we are is the first step in finding our way. You may be on top of the world, or it may feel like it is on top of you. So, for those in need we have an opportunity to use our shoes to make a difference:
Organizing and championing change
Engaging and educating about abuse
Shouting to the world, "Let's end the cycle of abuse!"
