This webinar will present the Massachusetts White Ribbon Day Campaign, a project of Jane Doe Inc., the Massachusetts Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence. We will discuss the history of this successful primary prevention campaign, its components, objectives and purposes. We will then discuss some of the lessons learned and prospects for the future.
Massachusetts White Ribbon Day is connected with the International White Ribbon Campaign (WRC). WRC was created by a handful of Canadian men in 1991 on the second anniversary of one man's massacre of fourteen women in Montreal. They began the White Ribbon Campaign to urge men to speak out against men’s violence against women. Today, the WRC is a worldwide campaign in over 60 countries that has collected well over 5 million signatures and growing.
Since launching the campaign in 2008, Jane Doe Inc. has recruited over 450 White Ribbon Day Ambassadors, 50 local organizations have joined as campaign affiliates and tens of thousands of men and boys have signed the pledge.
As a primary prevention strategy, this campaign focuses on celebrating positive masculinity and changing social norms; inviting men and boys to be part of the solution and to become leaders in helping end men’s violence against women.

About our series:
The impact of violence, abuse, neglect, disaster, war, and other harmful experiences continues long after the traumatic event has ended. Exposure to trauma is a pervasive issue that has significantly impacted the health and well-being of millions of Americans and nearly everyone seeking services in the public health and social
services systems. Understanding how trauma affects the emotional, behavioral, cognitive, social, and physical functioning of the people we care for can improve all health and social services.
