White Ribbon Day support strong

THE call has gone out to Coffs Coast men to support an end to violence against women.

On International White Ribbon Day tomorrow, they will be urged to swear or pledge to stop domestic violence in a mass swearing event at the Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshores.

This special event will be held at the Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshores from 6pm to 8pm and will include White Ribbon Day ambassadors and a barbecue.

The dress code will be white t-shirts so people will be able to form a large white ribbon on the night.

“Coffs Harbour men are needed to support the White Ribbon Foundation in their efforts to make violence against women a thing of the past,” said Marianne Jackson, the president of the Business and Professional Women of Coffs Harbour.

“For once, swearing is welcome.”

Also tomorrow, the Coffs Coast Against Domestic and Family Violence Committee is organising a stall from 9am to 2pm in Harbour Drive near the Growers’ Market.

“We will be giving out information and selling white ribbons and wristbands and talking to people about domestic violence issues on White Ribbon Day,” said Pam Townsend, a committee member.
