Leeds Domestic Violence and Abuse

White Ribbon Day

White Ribbon Day, an international event involving men and boys working together and pledging to ‘make a stance against all forms of violence and abuse towards women and girls’, will take place on Saturday 25th November. It will mark the first day of 16 Days of Action, an international campaign to eradicate violence and abuse against women and girls, which runs each year between Saturday 25th November and Sunday 10th December. During this time, a range of activities will take place across Leeds to challenge, bring attention to and eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls.

The theme for this years’ 16 Day of Action and White Ribbon Day is coercive and controlling behaviour.

City centre event

On Saturday 25th November, a ‘White Ribbon’ First Bus will park up at Dortmund Square and act as an information point for members of the public wanting to learn more about the campaign and Leeds’ domestic violence services.

Dance and theatre performances choreographed to convey the campaign’s important messages will take place throughout the day and specially designed selfie boards will be available for members of the public to make a visual pledge against violence and abuse towards women and girls.

The event hopes to be a lively and all-inclusive way of challenging and bringing attention to the serious matter that is violence and abuse towards women and girls while spreading important information to the public about how and where to get support. To support the campaign, visit Dortmund Square on Saturday 25th November to get involved, or tweet using #WhiteRibbonLeeds.
