White Ribbon Day is Friday, 19 November 2021!
White Ribbon Day is your opportunity to bring people together – in person or online - to raise awareness and commit to action to prevent men’s violence against women. We asked you to put the elimination of violence against women firmly on the agenda in your community by organising a White Ribbon event - a march, meal, webinar, meeting or more - and invite people to join you in ongoing action.
Beyond awareness: what happens next?
Across Australia, we're initiating "Community Action Groups" - like-minded people coming together to work within their community to prevent violence against women by developing community-led and designed responses to bring about change.
Your White Ribbon events will become a catalyst for the establishment of Community Action Groups in your communities. We will provide you with access to all the tools, materials and merchandise you will need to plan, promote and hold an event and engage those who attend to continue their commitment to change in the months and years ahead.
White Ribbon Day 2021 is coming soon!
For more information, download your White Ribbon Day Action kit below.
The action kits will include:
- Event and post-event ideas
- Video suggestions, and instructions about how to create your own
- Social media tiles and tips
- An event checklist
- Key messaging about violence against women and how to prevent it, and;
- Templates and resources such as posters, media release, Instagram frame, banners, and more.
Thank you for your help in 2020!
In 2020, we asked workplaces, schools and communities all over Australia, to stand up, speak out and act to end gendered violence.
More than 200 events were held across all corners of the nation, showcasing a diversity of creative expression; from White Ribbons tied around camels and letterboxes in Queensland, to a White Ribbon Day Silent March in Bunbury WA and a photo display in Cessnock NSW. During the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence that followed, we turned our attention to supporting the work of the incredible leaders behind this movement and amplifying the voices of others to call for change.
We want to thank all of you who hosted an event and helped us in 2020 to have a nation that respects women and is free from all forms of mens violence and abuse.
