A Springfield area sexual assault awareness group is hosting “PowerWalk 2019”, a parade and event Sunday morning in downtown Springfield rain or shine.
The “PowerWalk” portion will take place beginning at 11 a.m. at Jordan Valley Park and will end at Best of Luck Beer Hall at 313-B South Jefferson Avenue. The walk is driven by the belief that “no person deserves to be sexually assaulted, harassed, or afraid to walk down the street.”
After the Walk, there will be a series of displays aimed to raise awareness of sexual assault in our community and ways that community members can come together to combat the problem and support survivors.
Me Too Springfield President Jordan Harris will be speaking at the after-walk event and there will be an art exhibit and slide show aimed to generate discussion.
