There is nothing wrong with wearing white after labour day when it is in support of stopping violence.
Males throughout the university and London are being urged to wear a white ribbon to show their support towards a campaign which hopes to end violence against women.
Ribbons and information about violence were available in the University Community Centre atrium as of yesterday, said Perry Monaco, VP-campus issues for the University Students' Council and co-ordinator of this year's campus campaign.
"We have lots of information about the cause and how it started. You're encouraged to make a donation, but there's no obligation to do so," he said.
The London campaign is also in full force, explained Phil Arnold, public education and communications co-ordinator for Changing Ways, an agency which counsels abusive men.
"During the month of November, Changing Ways has sponsored an anti-violence poster campaign," he added.
White ribbons are also available at all Loblaws, Shoppers Drug Marts, London Hydro and Changing Ways, Arnold said.
