Events 2020

ORGANISE AN EVENT

Each year there are hundreds of White Ribbon events that take place all over New Zealand.  The largest event in 2019 was the White Ribbon Ride, which visited over 80 communities in both the North and South Islands throughout November in the lead up to White Ribbon Day. This year with COVID19 we are holding a virtual ride with riders attending local events rather than travelling throughout New Zealand. Events can take place at any time of the year and we would love to know what you are organising. You don’t require our permission, but it really helpful to know what is occurring.

What your organisation can do to support White Ribbon’s campaign to
Prevent Men’s Violence Towards Women.
