From  March 20th - 29th, 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 2014 White Ribbon Campaign involved over 25,000 people in the Greater Syracuse community! Stand With Us to end domestic and sexual violence and participate in the 2015 White RIbbon Campaign! Order your campaign materials and chocolate bars made locally by the Speach Family Candy Shoppe HERE.

Pleas click HERE to add your name to the list of dedicated community members who have pledged to make a difference.

Watch our "Survivors" video that shares the truths of Meghan, Janice and Katie - three strong women who share their personal and inspirational journeys.  "Survivors" illustrates our essential task - to help victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence find the parts of themselves that they lost or had to give up when forced to live in fear.  Thanks to Solon Quinn Studios for creating this beautiful piece.
