What is White Ribbon?
The White Ribbon campaign is the largest global male-led movement to stop men's violence against women. White Ribbon is an organisation that works to prevent violence against women by changing attitudes and behaviour.
To promote White Ribbon Day, which is held annually on November 25, the White Ribbon Team will have a stall and photo booth at Ocean Street, Maroochydore from 7.30pm Friday, November 24 and near the Loo with a View, Mooloolaba from 2.30pm on Saturday, November 25.
