White Ribbon Campaign

The White Ribbon Campaign is an internationally recognized movement. We presented it to our community as an initiative to bring men together in solidarity to promote more innovative and proactive ways to address domestic violence. We wanted to show the community that we have men who care about advocating against abuse, and the women who stand with and support their efforts.

Men’s DV Advocacy Awards 2012-19

Throughout the years, we’ve highlighted the works of men in our community who’ve provided a specific emphasis of support for domestic violence advocacy. They are businessmen, educators, CEOs, pastors, social workers or men who want to change the narrative of abuse by being a positive role model. We thank them for their time, talents, and showing survivors and the community at large that good, honorable, supportive men do indeed exist.
