13th Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes March
Before you judge a woman, walk a mile in her shoes. Redding’s popular Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is an international march to raise awareness and acknowledge the survivors of sexual assault, gender violence, and domestic abuse by emphasizing empathy and compassion for one another above all else.
This asks men to literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes, allowing this serious topic to be noted and open for conversation. All ages welcome. We hope to see you there!

ABOUT CALIFORNIA STREET LABS
California Street Labs is a project of Shasta Living Streets. This project supports our community by making the restored downtown warehouse available to community groups as a place for people to come together to test ideas and actions that build a vibrant downtown and a great city, as our community addresses questions of the 21st century. The activities and prototypes, shows and entertainment are designed by individuals and groups throughout our region to help people connect, contribute, address challenges and have fun together.
The project began as a one-year pop-up on October 6, 2018. Nearly 100 artists and groups participated throughout the first year to help restore the space and create popular experiences and activities. In 2020 the project will continue, with the restored warehouse opened as a public venue once a week, primarily on Saturdays, with one large event per month. Hours vary.
What we Hope to Achieve at California Street Labs
– Increase activities in downtown
– Create experiences for people to enjoy
– Help connect the many people working to improve our city
– Provide a space to prototype ideas for downtown
– Build resources while major projects are underway
