We encourage “whole family” participation (including your canine companions!) in the annual Walk for Change. Although the topic—ending sexual violence—is serious, our event is fun and festive. We want every member of the family, from infants to older teens, to feel comfortable and welcome.
That said, you are the best judge of whether this event is right for your child. Some parents aren’t sure how to explain the purpose of the Walk to their children. Others fear that they won’t know how to appropriately answer any questions that may arise. We hope you’ll find our guide to talking about the Walk for Change with children in age-appropriate ways to be helpful.
