PROCLAIM MARCH 1, 2017 WHITE RIBBON DAY
Due to considerations in finding a suitable event location this year, the next WRD will be on Wednesday, March 1, 2017.
Jane Doe Inc. will declare the 10th annual statewide Massachusetts White Ribbon Day to call upon men of good heart to stand up and be counted as allies against male violence against women. Please join by participating in a local proclamation event. We encourage proclamation events to take place anytime that fits in the local calendar, before or after the statewide WRD.
Massachusetts White Ribbon Day is part of an international effort to engage more men and boys to help end male violence against women. Through this proclamation event, you can invite and inspire men in your communities to make a public and private commitment to promote respectful, safe and healthy relationships and communities.

WHO CAN DO A PROCLAMATION

THE BASIC STEPS
The crux of the campaign is for individual men to take the White Ribbon pledge and to get involved in the local and statewide activities. The impact of thousands of men from all walks of life throughout Massachusetts declaring their commitment to this principle of non-violence will, with your help, be far-reaching and long-lasting.
