Campbelltown City White Ribbon Committee
White Ribbon Night Men’s Night in Campbelltown, which is organised in support of White Ribbon Night, is not exclusive to men. In fact, it welcomes everyone from all backgrounds. The event, however, aims to facilitate a safe space for men to reflect on their behaviours as men together and to encourage them to redefine what it means to be a man. At the 2017 Men’s Night held on Thursday, 26th July, the speakers shared deeply personal and heartfelt stories, and how these experiences have shaped them to be who they are and who they want to be - a loving father, a respectful partner, and a positive role model to young men in their community.
