RED SHOES ON WEDNESDAY
SEPTEMBER 9, 2020
Red Shoes Rock is an international awareness campaign giving voice and support to those affected by prenatal alcohol exposure. Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) is the leading cause of intellectual and other lifetime disabilities. Did you know that 1 in 20 have Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)? Eighty percent are un or misdiagnosed. Many are unaware that the typical facial features often associated with alcohol exposure in the past are only present in 5-10% of those on the spectrum, so for many, it is an invisible disability.
An adult on the spectrum, RJ Formanek started the Red Shoes Rock movement to bring awareness to FASD. Every September during FASD Awareness month, people around the globe have joined in on the movement by wearing red shoes to spread awareness and start conversations!
The goals for FASD Awareness Month & the Red Shoes Rock movement are to:
- Turn invisibility into visibility
- Create Conversation -THERE IS NO SAFE AMOUNT OF ALCOHOL DURING PREGNANCY
- Change Stigma into understanding and acceptance
