In 2001, the Dallas County Sexual Assault Coalition (DCSAC) was established to provide a forum to assess, explore, and recommend better outcomes for victims/survivors of sexual violence.

DCSAC brings together law enforcement, the District Attorney’s Office, social service agencies, medical and mental health professionals, and concerned community members to work towards creating a more coordinated community effort to address sexual assault and victim services.

DCSAC is committed to meeting the diverse needs of sexual assault victims with two primary objectives:

1. To improve the provision of services to victims of sexual assault in Dallas County by providing thorough efficient, sensitive, and interdisciplinary services

2. To ensure meaningful community collaboration in the services provided to victims of sexual assault and a forum of support for the organizations, professionals, and first-responders providing services.

The Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Event is a playful opportunity for men to raise awareness in their community about the serious causes, effects and remediation of sexual violence. There is an old saying: “You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.” This event asks men to literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes. Women and children are welcome to register and walk to support their men! It’s not easy walking in heels, but it is a fun and entertaining way to deliver the important message:

RAPE AFFECTS US ALL !!!!!!!!!!!

OUR MISSION:

Co-creating a United Gender Movement, men will be a part of the solution to ending sexualized violence.

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Events are political and performance art with public, personal and existential messages. At a Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Event there is no distinction between performer and audience. Our mission is to create a unique and powerful public experience that educates individuals and communities about the causes of sexualized violence, provides them with prevention and remediation strategies and empowers them to further develop and implement these knowledge’s and skills interpersonally and politically.
History of Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®


Frank Baird created Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® in 2001. What started out as a small group of men daring to totter around a park has grown to become a world-wide movement with tens of thousands of men raising millions of dollars for local rape crisis centers, domestic violence shelters and other sexualized violence education, prevention and remediation programs.
