White Ribbon offers men the opportunity to be part of the solution to ending violence towards women. Violence is endemic within New Zealand with one in three women experiencing violence from a partner in their lifetime, while on average, fourteen women are killed each year by a member of their own family.
White Ribbon is a global campaign led by men who condemn this violence and want to take action. You can be that change by supporting White Ribbon and joining with other men so that together we can create a new norm of non-violence in New Zealand. The simplest step is wearing a white ribbon as a personal pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence towards women.
In 2012 we showcased men who do not use violence in their lives and begin to explain how violence is not just physical in nature. There are many ways you can join us as we look towards 2013 – nominate or become an Ambassador, take The Pledge, follow us on Twitter and Facebook or organise an event within your community – check out the ACT tab for details.Rob McCann White Ribbon Campaign Manager
