He’s a positive man trying to make a positive change in his community. From leading peace marches up and down North Capitol Street to helping and mentoring children with incarcerated parents, Tony Lewis, Jr is an advocate for the people.

The Route for the Slut Walk in DC

Location: Lafayette Park (16th St NW and H St NW)

From the DC Slut Walk website:

  • SlutWalk is a movement to stop violence again women and specifically aims to challenge “rape culture” which excuses sexual violence through messaging such as “Don’t Get Raped”–instead the message should be “Don’t Rape!”

  • SlutWalk encourages everyone, regardless of gender, to challenge victim blaming and to put the responsibility solely on the perpetrators of the violence.

  • SlutWalk aims to create dialogue about street harassment, sexual harassment in the workplace, sexual assault, abuse and rape and the culture that perpetuates such violence.

  • SlutWalk recognizes that sexual assault and abuse is not something solely done by men to women; girls, boys, men and transgender individuals are also affected.

  • SlutWalk recognizes that no community is immune from sexual violence however women, women of color, sex workers and transgender individuals face higher rates of sexual violence.

  • Slutwalk opposes slut shaming and believes that women have the right to make decisions about their sex lives and the right to control their bodies.

  • SlutWalk stands for full reproductive rights and condemns the recent attacks on a women’s right to choose in DC and across the U.S.

  • SlutWalk is LGBTQ inclusive. We oppose homophobia and transphobia and celebrate all forms of gender identity and expression.

  • SlutWalk is not about hate, and we do not use hateful language.
