Muslims for White Ribbon

What is the White Ribbon Campaign?

The White Ribbon Campaign is the largest grassroots effort in the world of men working to end violence against women [see: www.whiteribbon.ca].

 What does it mean to wear a white ribbon?
Wearing a white ribbon is a pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls.

What are our objectives?

  • Break the silence on violence against women in the Muslim community by encouraging Mosques and organizations to sponsor awareness events and deliver a Friday Khutba  on this issue.
  • Promote healthy relationships through education.
  • Create partnerships among Mosques, women’s organizations, and social agencies to create a future without violence against women.

When is the Muslims for White Ribbon Campaign?
The Campaign will run from November 25, 2013 [International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women] and culminate in White Ribbon Days at Reviving the Islamic Spirit (RIS) Convention at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (December 27 – 29).

The National Khutba Campaign on Violence against Women will be on Friday, December 6, 2013.

Who are we?
We are a committee of volunteers - grandfathers, fathers, husbands, uncles, brothers, sons, and friends. We strongly believe that violence against women and girls is unacceptable and we are committed to working with our fellow citizens to eliminate it.
