Second annual Walk A Mile event draws a crowd
Tuesday, May 5, 2015 — The second annual Walk A Mile In Their Shoes — Engaging Communities, Empowering Victims — was a time to challenge people to do more.
The event coincides with National Crime Victims’ Rights Week April 19 through April 25 and is presented by Lassen Family Services and the Lassen County Victim Witness.
“In our community, virtually everyone is or knows a victim or survivor of crime. In fact, in 2014, Lassen Family Services provided assistance to approximately 1,365 residents representing one in 16 people in the county,” said Lassen Family Services executive director Melissa Downing. “As you look at the crowd of people gathered today, victims of crime stand next to you and with you to engage in a common effort in the pursuit of justice.”Add a comment
