27th Annual White Ribbon Campaign

Mar 1, 2021 to Mar 31, 2021

During the entire month of March, thousands of Central New Yorkers will wear a white ribbon or white wristband to raise awareness of domestic & sexual violence and recognize the 27th Annual White Ribbon Campaign! 

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

Wearing a white ribbon or wristband is an important statement. It means you will not support, commit or remain silent about abuse.  Show your support and add your name to our pledge

The 2020 White Ribbon Campaign involved over 20,000 people in the Greater Syracuse community. Stand with us to end domestic and sexual violence and participate in the 2021 White Ribbon Campaign!

If you have questions in the meantime, contact Special Events Coordinator Hannah Fuller at (315) 425-0818 or send her an email.

Stand Up. Speak Out. Get Involved. Order your 2021 White Ribbon Campaign materials securely online!

Preordering to sell through the month? Fill out our 2021 Order Form and email it to or mail it to Hannah Fuller's attention at our main office (723 James St, Syracuse, NY 13203)!
