White Ribbon Campaign at Fort McNair
April 17, 2013
The Army Air Operations Group, U.S. Army Military District of Washington is hosting a White Ribbon Campaign Tuesday, 23 April, at Fort Lesley J. McNair, Washington. White Ribbon is the world's largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls to promote gender equity and healthy relationships.
"The White Ribbon Campaign is the largest effort in the world of men working to end men's violence against women," said Felicia Hunter, AAOG campaign organizer. "The WRC was created by a handful of Canadian men in 1991 on the second anniversary of one man's massacre of 14 women in Montreal. The campaign encourages both men and women to sign a pledge to stop violence against women and proudly wear the White Ribbon throughout the work day."
Hunter says the campaign this year is opening up to all men and women, and the AAOG will have a tent/booth located across from the Fort McNair shoppette from 1130-1430. Individuals who want to show their support of this year's WRC campaign may stop by and sign a pledge to stop violence against women and collect a white ribbon and grab a hot dog for lunch.
Supporters may coordinate to sign pledges and pick up a white ribbon prior to 23 April 2013 by contacting the AAOG Sexual Assault Response Coordinator at 202-685-2436, building 18, second floor, Fort McNair.
