White Ribbon Day is connected with an international campaign called The White Ribbon Campaign. This campaign was created by a handful of Canadian men in 1991 on the second anniversary of one man's massacre of fourteen women in Montreal. They began this campaign to urge men to speak out against violence against women. Today, the WRC is a worldwide campaign in 60 countries that has collected well over five million signatures and growing.
In 2008, Jane Doe, Inc. launched the opportunity for Massachusetts to join this international effort for human rights to engage men to help end violence against women men, and children. The approach is one of celebrating positive masculinity; inviting men and boys to be leaders to help end violence against women; and encouraging men and boys to contribute to a solution in any number of ways.
Salem State is proud to be an official affiliate organization of the 2018 White Ribbon Day and engage our community in ending gender-based violence. Stop by our table on March 1, at the North Dining Commons between 11:30 am-1 pm to sign the pledge and get your white ribbon.
