Annual Cape Cod White Ribbon Day Calls for Action Against Domestic Violence

WEST BARNSTABLE – The 7th annual Cape Cod White Ribbon Day will take place on March 21st, serving as a call for men and boys to take action against domestic violence.

Independence House, Yarmouth Police and the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office are collaborating on the annual event at Cape Cod Community College where men will pledge not to commit violence against women and children.

Men of all ages are encouraged to attend the event which creates awareness among the males in our community about the issue of men’s violence against women and gender based violence, along with taking action to be part of the solution.

The White Ribbon Campaign began in 1991 after 14 female students were targeted because of their gender and killed by a gunman at the University of Montreal.

Members of the Cape Cod Community College police department and the Yarmouth, Barnstable and other Cape Cod police departments will be taking part.

The event is part of the 12th annual Statewide Commonwealth of Massachusetts White Ribbon Day.

It is scheduled for Thursday March 21st from 11-1 at the College’s West Barnstable campus. The public is invited, there is no charge.
