“We must be actively against instead of passively for sexual violence.” - 1,800 Miles Sexual violence is a cultural issue that will not go away just because we ignore it. Three college friends understood this and decided to do something. With few resources and little funding, they headed to Miami in the summer of 2008 and were ready to walk all the way to Boston in an effort to raise awareness about sexual violence. Carry their only possessions on their backs and never knowing where they would be sleeping at the end of each day, they slowly made their way up the East Coast. However, they did have their set backs as certain days included being chased by dogs and walking numerous miles through the rain. Despite these adversities, the three walkers continued forward for three long, hot summer months. Along the way, they talked to the media, met survivors, and even spent the night with a Senator. 1,800 Miles recounts those stories both humorous and heartbreaking from the walk and is sure to be a story that inspires other social activists to start moving forward – one step at a time.
