Support White Ribbon
Each year, local charity Equation lead on Nottingham’s White Ribbon Day Campaign.
This annual campaign asks people from our community to stand together in helping end men’s violence against women. The emphasis on engaging our male allies to lead the way. We do this through promoting, selling, and wearing White Ribbons, which symbolize the campaign and help to raise awareness.
This year it has become even more important; with rises in incidents of domestic violence and abuse (from 2 women killed per week to 5 per week). In previous years, we usually reach around 2,500 men with our City Centre giveaway. But because of COVID we need to find new ways of adapting the campaign so this year we are taking it online.
You can play a huge part in helping to promote the White Ribbon Campaign and ending violence towards women and girls in our community.
Here are a few ways you can get involved:
