East Meets West
November 12, 2015
White Ribbon was privileged to be invited to participate at a major Diwali event in Wellington (East Meets West) and launch the campaign in front of 400 members of the ethnic community. The entire audience and special guests all took The Pledge ‘to never commit condone or remain silent about violence towards women’ with her Worship Celia Wade Brown, Mayor of Wellington and Her Excellency Dato’ Lim Kim Eng, High Commissioner of Malaysia to New Zealand, Manwaljit Singh Bakshi MP and Inspector Rakesh Naidoo NZ Police.
A truly fantastic demonstration of community commitment. Special thanks to White Ribbon Ambassador Raveen Annamalai, President of Multicultural Council of Wellington for pulling this event together.
