What to Know About the Believe Survivors Walkout

Participation is simple: you wear black and quite literally “walk out” (of “your home, workplace, classroom, wherever you are”). If you are unable to physically leave your current setting, you are encouraged to share a photo of yourself or your group with the hashtag #BelieveSurvivors.
