PETERSBURG, Va. – We often hear the saying, ” Walk a mile in someone else’s  shoes”  to promote empathy–to better understand how someone feels. Sheriff Vanessa Crawford and Lieutenant Colonel Ferley Yerby from The Petersburg Sheriff’s Office talked about the second annual, “Walk a mile in her Shoes,” an award-winning international men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence. Proceeds from the event will benefit The James House, a local organization that educates and advocates for victims of sexual assualt.
