White Ribbon Day

White Ribbon Day

The 25th November is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, also known as White Ribbon Day. We were lucky enough to be invited to Havering Sixth Form College to get involved with their event.
We had a stall set up for the students, to make empowering and positive badges. We also shared an activity that got the students to think about what they should or shouldn’t say to someone that discloses abuse to them. Both were very well received.
We were given the opportunity to talk in the lecture hall, to share personal experiences and information about what Survivors Together does. We reached over 300 students.
We were joined by some other amazing organisations, including Forward – a charity doing amazing work across Africa and the UK to put an end to Female Genital Mutilation as well as other important work. St. Giles Trust was also there. They support children and young adults to find a better future for themselves and their families. There were many other groups too, doing brilliant work.
Thank you again to Havering Sixth Form College for including us and spreading the word to end violence against women.
