Bucks mark White Ribbon Day

AFC Telford United marks White Ribbon Day to end men’s violence against women.

The Bucks are supporting ‘White Ribbon Day’ today (25th November)

to raise awareness of the need to end male violence against women.

White Ribbon Day is marked around the world, and is the largest global initiative to end male violence against women by calling on men to take action to make a difference.

Luke Shelley, AFC Telford United football operations manager said “As a club, we believe it’s important to take this real opportunity, to get the message out that male violence against women must end.”

“All men can make a difference by thinking of their own behaviour and being prepared to call out sexist and harassing behaviour when they see it.  Along with White Ribbon UK, we want to encourage all men to listen to women and learn to be allies, so that we can end violence against women once and for all.”

#AllMenCan

On White Ribbon Day Thursday 25 November, and in the 16 days that follow, White Ribbon UK are asking people in their communities, organisations and workplaces, to come together, and say ‘no’ to violence against women.

Because of thousands of people like you we are able to get the message out that men’s violence against women and girls must end.  And that all men can make a difference.

#AllMenCan is White Ribbon UK’s leading message this year. It was developed in March when the murder of Sarah Everard brought women’s experience of men’s violence to the forefront of everyone’s minds.  It also opened up so many conversations about men taking action and making a stand.  As we move towards the end of the year we want as many men as possible to think carefully and make the White Ribbon Promise to never commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women.

Make the White Ribbon Promise

People are invited to wear a White Ribbon and make the White Ribbon Promise to never commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women https://www.whiteribbon.org.uk/promise
