20th Annual White Ribbon Campaign

Mar 28, 2014 to Apr 6, 2014

From  March 28th -  April 6th, thousands of Central New Yorkers will be wearing a white ribbon or white wristband to raise awareness about domestic and sexual violence. 

The White Ribbon Campaign is led by men and encourages all members of the community - men and women, young and old - to join them in their efforts. This male leadership helps to acknowledge the important contributions men have made to this effort and invites others to take a role.

Wearing a white ribbon or wristband is an important statement. It means you will not commit, condone or remain silent about domestic or sexual violence.

The 2013 White Ribbon Campaign involved over 25,000 people in the Greater Syracuse community! 

You can start by clicking HERE to add your name to the list of dedicated community members who have pledged to make a difference.
