The White Ribbon Campaign invites men and boys to be leaders to help end violence against women.
White Ribbon Day is part of an international campaign called the White Ribbon Campaign. Designed especially with men in mind at the time, this was created by a handful of Canadian men in 1991 on the second anniversary of one man’s massacre of fourteen women in Montreal. They began the White Ribbon Campaign to urge men to speak out against violence against women. Today, the WRC is a worldwide campaign in 60 countries that has collected well over 5 million signatures and growing. Many communities have joined, with operating city and town proclamation events, information tables, and educational events. Learn how your community can participate this year by visiting their calendar of events.
