For years, Lassen Family Services has held the Walk a Mile in their Shoes event to raise awareness for victims and survivors of child abuse and sexual assault and their families. On April 13, in honor of Crime Victims’ Rights Week, the Honor Guard from California Correctional Center presented colors at Memorial Park in Susanville to kick off the event.

Community organizations representing victims programs, law enforcement, social services and charities were on hand. There was also a mile-long walk to honor victims and survivors of abuse.
