Sign up and say no to violence
Local men and women are invited to join Bristol Rovers and sign the White Ribbon pledge to tackle violence against women.
Come along to College Green at 12pm on Thursday, November 29 to sign the pledge at the White Ribbon Gazebo. You can also find out more about the pledge and sign up online.
Bristol Rovers chair Nick Higgs said: “We think this is a great chance to show the red card to men who abuse women and our players are happy to wear the ribbon to show that men are against domestic violence and abuse too.”
One in four women will be victims of domestic violence and abuse in their lifetimes.
“The focus of the White Ribbon Campaign gives men and women the chance to show their support for ending domestic violence and abuse, and to personally pledge that they will never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women,” said Paul Welcomme, who is Bristol’s White Ribbon ambassador.
Chris Green, the national White Ribbon campaign director, will be the guest speaker at the event on Thursday.
Help and support about domestic violence and abuse is available from the Bristol Domestic Abuse Forum website.
