White Ribbon Day

The campaign culminates on White Ribbon Day (25 November) each year, when men and women across Australia are called to wear a white ribbon or wristband as a visual symbol of their commitment and oath. … They began the White Ribbon Campaign to urge men to speak out against violence against women.

Who Created White Ribbon?

In 1991 they initiated a male-led movement known as White Ribbon, with an annual awareness-raising event (White Ribbon Day) held between 25 November and 6 December. It is now an international effort in over 57 countries, of men and boys working to end violence against women.

Circular Head Aboriginal Corporation (CHAC) hold a ceremony each year in Smithton to raise awareness of this issue.

This year the ceremony will be held on Monday 27th November 2017.
