White Ribbon Day 2011

JewishCare's annual White Ribbon Day Men’s breakfast was a huge success.

100 men including many community leaders attended the breakfast at the Vibe Hotel Rushcutters Bay and heard John Brogden provide a heartfelt and educational talk. John spoke about his experiences growing up in a home with domestic violence and the impact this had on his life. The main message that he strongly encouraged men to take a stand and say that violence, in any form, is never acceptable.

The theme of this year’s event is ‘I Swear’ – “I swear never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women”.

A giant White Ribbon is in place at Fischl House and there will be one at the Saber St site (the future home of JewishCare) next week.
White Ribbon Day also marks the launch of JewishCare's 16 days 16 Rabbi's 16 Synagogue campaign.
