Today is White Ribbon Day, the international day when people wear a white ribbon to show that they do not condone violence towards women. There’s plenty happening around the city as we join together to raise awareness for this important cause.

To help demonstrate why this is so important to us, we’ve put together this video featuring Mayor Guppy and some of our people talking about White Ribbon Day and their pledge.

 

To acknowledge the work of the local agencies and groups who support the reduction of family harm in Upper Hutt, and provide support to women, children and whanau, we’ll be delivering cupcakes. These have been made locally and are decorated with the White Ribbon branding and a personalised message, just a small token of our thanks.

There is also a display in The Mall and at Upper Hutt Central Library where our team will be spending time talking to the community about White Ribbon Day and this year’s key message, ‘CHALLENGE THE #OUTDATED’. We encourage you to head on down today.
