Take a Public Stance Against Violence!
White Ribbon Campaign

White Ribbon Day 2018 was observed on Friday November 16th in Ohio this year. On this day thousands of men, women and youth took a public stance in support of healthy non-violence relationships by wearing a white ribbone and taking the pledge below.   Please join them in taking the pledge now....

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.

How is Dad Going?

It can be common for expectant and new fathers to experience worries, anxiety and depression around the birth of their child.  Little is known about this, but estimates are that 1 in 10 or more fathers struggle with their moods during this time.  For dads that have a partner coping with depression as well, the rate of men that struggle can be as high as 25-50%

Click here for some online resources and tips on how to cope if you or a father in your life is experiencing worries, anxiety or depression.
