As an anti-oppression agency that offers comprehensive services to survivors of domestic violence, HAWC is supporting the worldwide human rights movement of the White Ribbon Campaign. This campaign engages men to help end violence against women, men, LGBTQ and children. HAWC is partnering with Salem City Hall and the Salem No Place for Hate Committee to spread awareness and support March 3th through March 6th which will end with ceremony at the State House. HAWC will have about 500 white ribbons available to hand out at our office sites next week for anyone who wants them.
“Part of the No Place for Hate Committee’s mission is to mobilize citizens to challenge bigotry and violence, and to promote a prejudice-free community in Salem,” said No Place for Hate Committee Chair Scott Weisberg. “We feel this campaign aligns perfectly with our Committee’s purpose and are proud to work with HAWC and Mayor Driscoll in promoting White Ribbon Day in the City of Salem.”
