Walk With Women Against Violence is a peaceful march which begins at Martin Luther Commons on Sunday, November 21st at 1:00 pm.
We will gather at the MLK Commons at 1:00pm.

Walk With Women Against Violence is a peaceful march for all women, men, children, students, NIU and DeKalb community members held to peacefully demonstrate that we will come together in numbers to raise awareness to the ongoing violence against women in our society.

In lieu of recent happenings in regards to our "ray-of-sunshine", which shook our Huskie community, we feel it is important to utilize this collective energy to increase awareness to the unrelenting violence against women in our society.

Violence against women is one of the most widespread human rights issues in the world; this march seeks to immediately demonstrate to our community that violence against women is becoming more apparent within our society.

As members of the human race, we need to rally together to curb the detrimental circumstances surrounding violence against women within the DeKalb community, as well as globally.

We will walk for those who no longer can; we will wear the color yellow and white. White is the national color for awareness of violence against women. We will march, peacefully and respectfully, to make obvious to the public that we will no longer tolerate violence against women. As we walk, peacefully and respectfully, we will gather others and fuse together as one to raise awareness to the continued violence against women in our community.

We will begin the march by walking South down Normal Road to Lincoln Highway.
We will take a left on Lincoln Highway, walk east to First Street. We will turn left onto First Street and walk to Locust Street.
The march will turn left on Locust and walk until we reach John Street.
We will turn right on John street and walk until we reach College Avenue.
We will march on College Ave. until we reach Gilbert Way, where we will turn right.
We will take Gilbert Way until we turn left on Lucinda.
We will take Lucinda until we reach Normal Road. We will turn left on Normal Road and walk back to the Martin Luther King Commons.
The route will take approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete
