White Ribbon Campaign 2022
December 6th is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women also known as White Ribbon Day.
White Ribbon is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, promote gender equity, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity (www.whiteribbon.ca).
Ribbons will be handed out at the gates on December 6th to commemorate lives lost and to show support for all survivors of gender-based violence (GBV). Participation in the campaign also signifies a commitment to education, awareness-raising and positive change moving forward.
