Muslims for White Ribbon

I received an email promoting a new campaign ‘Muslims for White Ribbon’. I think it is a wonderful initiative, to see Muslim men coming together to end abuse against their women. For me it is a dream come true that men in this particular community recognize there is an issue and it has be to mitigated.

This is the website: http://muslimsforwhiteribbon.com

And a little about the campaign:

About

What is the White Ribbon Campaign?
The White Ribbon Campaign is the largest grassroots effort in the world of men working to end violence against women. [see: www.whiteribbon.ca].

What does it mean to wear a White Ribbon?
Wearing a White Ribbon is a pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls.

What are our Objectives?

  • Break the silence on violence against women in the Muslim community by encouraging Mosques and organizations to sponsor awareness events and deliver a Friday Khutba (on December 14) on this issue.
  • Promote healthy and non-violent relationships through education.
  • Create partnerships among Mosques, women’s organizations, and social agencies to create a future with no violence against women.

When is the Muslims for White Ribbon Campaign?
The Campaign will be run from November 25, 2012 [International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women] and culminate in White Ribbon Days at RIS at the Metro Convention Centre (Dec 21 – Dec 23).

The National Khutba Campaign on Violence against Women will be on Friday, December 14, 2012.

Who are we?
We are a committee of volunteers – fathers, sons, grandfathers, brothers, uncles, and friends. We strongly believe that violence against women and girls is unacceptable and we are committed to working with our fellow citizens to eliminate it.”
