Ask yourself if you know what White Ribbon stands for. If you do then chances are that they have made you think about the issue of men’s abuse of women and children.

We are deeply saddened to hear of the closure of White Ribbon Australia, and our hearts go out to the hard-working staff who have been affected. It has closed due to high demand for their support and lack of sponsorship.  Less than $1m.

Since its beginnings in Canada in the late 80's the movement has spread across the world leading to the high recognition of the White Ribbon symbol.  Many people have engaged with White Ribbon because they want to see a world free of violence, where women and children can feel safe.  

White Ribbon's grassroots volunteer community will continue to do the valuable work of standing up, speaking out and acting to prevent men's violence towards women and children, and this vital work will continue in South Australia.

We call on the Federal and State Government of South Australia to enter discussions regarding facilitating White Ribbon Australia’s revival.
