Croydon supports White Ribbon campaign


White Ribbon logo

The council is a keen supporter of the White Ribbon Campaign, which is run by a group of men with a simple message: there is no excuse for violence against women.

The campaign works with men and boys to challenge male cultures that lead to harassment, abuse and violence. They pledge to call out such behaviour among their peers and promote a culture of equality and respect.
