Walk the Talk to End Violence Against Women & Children

Walk the Talk has been adapted from 'shoe project' initiatives in other communities, some related to violence against women, some to soldiers killed in the line of duty.

Community organizations across Toronto have participated by "sponsoring" a pair of shoes for a woman or child. Agencies donated shes to represent the woman or child murdered; some decorated shoes and all provided a brief message about why violence against women and children needs to stop.

The goal of this exhibit is to raise awareness and encourage action to end violence against women and children. We hope that it will help people grasp the incredible number of women and children who are murdered across Ontario each year, and remind our community that this is an outrage and must be stopped.
