Derby City White Ribbon Campaign – Monday 20th November to Saturday 25th November
A group of 8 male students from across different secondary schools in Derby have come together to create a White Ribbon Day Campaign. White Ribbon Day is an International Day of Awareness where men and boys show their commitment to ending violence against women and girls. White Ribbon UK mark this on 25th November. This year’s focus is ‘Change the Story’. A video has been produced along with Derby Theatre, by young people and for young people to #ChangeTheStory. The video was funded by Derby City Council, Derby Youth Alliance, Community Action and Derby Theatre and features sportsmen from Derby County Football Club, Derbyshire County Cricket Club and local music artist Scriptz who are in support of the campaign.
Several secondary schools in Derby City are participating in raising awareness week beginning 20th November 2023 by showing the White Ribbon campaign video and White Ribbon presentation to all year groups in form time or school assemblies, male students and staff wearing white ribbons, fundraising for local women’s charities, and for getting creative and designing giant white ribbons for a city-wide competition.
