Sexual assault can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, or economic status. SAC sees anyone who has been affected by sexual violence, including non-offending family members, regardless of their ability to pay. In addition, their school-based preventive education programs reach more than 150,000 students throughout the state of Tennessee. Walk A Mile in Their Shoes gives our community the opportunity to stand together and support survivors of sexual violence while helping bring an end to sexual assault in Middle Tennessee.

This type of united force turns shame into power, pain into resilience, and victims into survivors.
