“Walk In My Shoes” Display at the Florida Capitol
March 5-9, 2018
Monday – Friday
Rotunda Florida Capitol
The 2018 Walk in My Shoes will launch in Tallahassee this March. Before Lauren takes those first steps, we are hosting the second annual ‘Walk in My Shoes’ display at the Florida Capitol. Last year, we received thousands of physical and paper shoes from survivors across Florida. This incredible visual reaches lawmakers and visitors to the Capitol complex in a unique way by putting them face-to-face with actual shoes and cutouts from brave survivors sharing their personal stories. And, the news of this exhibit spread far beyond Tallahassee, with coverage statewide and in USA Today.
To make this education and awareness impactful we need your help!
Please download, print and decorate a pair of shoes with images, testimonies or stories, or submit a physical pair of shoes with an accompanying statement (directions attached). This is a true expression of your journey, so there is no need to censor your feelings. Send us your shoes and we’ll make sure your voice is heard in Tallahassee.
We will display your submissions March 5 – 9 in the Capitol Rotunda. Lauren will begin the 2018 Walk in My Shoes in the Capitol Saturday, March 10. Join us!
