It will then make a right turn on to Mission Street followed by a left on 24th Street. At San Bruno Ave, it will make a right turn to approach the Finish Line at La Raza/Potrero del Sol Park.

WHY: Every 2 minutes in the U.S. someone is sexually assaulted. Survivors of rape often feel isolated and ashamed. Walk Against Rape provides a space for survivors of sexual violence to heal and celebrate their survival. The Walk Against Rape provides information to communities about the resources available in the aftermath of an assault and supports creating a culture that says NO! to sexual violence. Only when the entire community takes responsibility for making rape unacceptable will we all live free from sexual violence.

DETAILS: Walk Against Rape is an opportunity in San Francisco to raise awareness and be an active participant in the solution to end sexual violence. Walk Against Rape is a 3.5 mile walk starting at The Women's Building at 10:00AM and culminating in a Festival at 1:00PM at La Raza/Potrero del Sol Park. The festival includes performances, speakers, prizes for the highest fundraisers, tabling by community organizations offering information and resources, and food donated by SFWAR supporters. All proceeds will benefit San Francisco Women Against Rape.
