White Ribbon Relay 2018
White Ribbon Day (November 25th) is the International Day for the Elimination of Men’s Violence Towards Women. White Ribbon aims to end men’s violence towards women by encouraging men to lead by example and talk to other men. Together we can make a difference and this year we’re asking men to ‘Stand Up’ by taking the online pledge and committing to take one or more actions. The eight actions offer men choices – to listen, reflect, alter their behaviour, talk to others and disrupt negative behaviour – which build respectful behaviour that undermines violence.
NPiS supported New Plymouth's annual event - the White Ribbon Street Relay. Held on November 23rd, 24 teams battled it out to be associated with the kaupapa of stopping Men’s violence towards Women. It was a great turn out with lots of positive energy! Thank you to Dane Haskell and the Taranaki Safe Families Trust for organising such a fantastic event again this year.
