October White Ribbon Newsletter
October 26, 2011
You can tell we’re busy when the October newsletter comes out a week before November! But rest assured, all our key projects are on track and White Ribbon will be on everyone’s mind this November. Later this week we have a major announcement, which will bring the White Ribbon ethos to an even greater range and number of families across New Zealand.
The 2011 Campaign is focusing on three key messages:
- Violence towards women is unacceptable
- Men must stand up and provide leadership
- Men are part of the solution
White Ribbon Ambassadors are emphasising the message that it’s OK to play with controlled aggression on the field, but you must never bring that aggression into your home or relationships. To assist local spokespeople we’ve put the full page of key messages on the website. These may also come in handy if you are planning to write letters to the editor.
We hope your preparations for White Ribbon Day are coming along well – keep us posted. And congratulations to the All Blacks!!Rob McCann Campaign Manager
