YWCA Walk a mile in her shoes 2018


September 12, 2018: As a citizen news activist  of 11 years, it's been an honour to focus my camera onto issues of human rights, civil rights, political and community issues. Today I was thrilled and honoured to join many Edmontonians on this cold autumn day  to participate in the annual YWCA 'Walk a mile in her shoes. I put on my Edmonton Oilers "Non Violence" jersey and melded myself into the crowd carrying a painting like a picket sign as I always do 'She smiles after all that..."  during, walks like this that highlights violence towards women, children and men. I made this YouTube as the end of the day with highlights from the walk and added an interview of a man I met along the way home after the walk where we exchanged ideas our thoughts about family violence, anger and bullying.
