Wear a white ribbon

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.
