On November 20, 2015 the following pledge was recited at the White Ribbon Day Public Rally at 12 noon on the steps of the Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Courthouse.
WHITE RIBBON PLEDGE
I PLEDGE NEVER TO COMMIT, CONDONE OR REMAIN SILENT ABOUT VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN, CHILDREN AND INTIMATE PARTNERS.
FROM THIS DAY FORWARD, I PROMISE TO TALK TO FAMILY, FRIENDS AND CO-WORKERS ABOUT STOPPING VIOLENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY.
I PROMISE TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO DO THE SAME AND I PROMISE TO LEAD THEM BY EXAMPLE.
THIS WHITE RIBBON I AM WEARING WILL REMIND ME OF THIS PLEDGE.
On that same day, over 10,000 individuals recruited by 35 White Ribbon Campaign partner agencies across Ohio recited the pledge on their own or with family members, friends and co-workers.
Similar pledges are being spoken today and throughout the next two weeks at White Ribbon Campaign events in over 60 countries across the globe.
We believe that healthy fathers spend time reading to their children regularly! Their children reap enormous benefits and it is a wonderful way to develop a meaningful father-child bond.
