 MILWAUKEE - Women and men band together to bring awareness to the lack of services and support for victims of sexual assault in Milwaukee.

This was the third year this group has held a walk and demonstration. Event organizers say a big concern is the lack of programs in Milwaukee to ensure 24-hour access to rape crisis services.

The first walk to raise awareness for the cause was held in Toronto in 2011. The movement quickly spread to more than 200 cities worldwide.
