Men and boys in the community are being asked to wear a white ribbon and make the pledge to never commit, condone, or remain silent about violence against women.
The annual White Ribbon Campaign began November 25, and is aimed at raising awareness among men and boys, encouraging them to work together to end violence against women. Cst. Tyler French of West Division has led the White Ribbon Campaign at DRPS for the past two years and encourages all men to support this important initiative.
Everyone is asked to wear a white ribbon from November 25, which is the International Day to Eliminate Violence Against Women, until December 6, Canada's national Day to Remember. The closing day marks the 25th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre where an armed man entered Montreals Ecole Polytechnique, killing 14 women and injuring 10 other women and four men, before killing himself.
