Students Help Launch White Ribbon Campaign at March 3 Men’s Basketball Game
On Saturday, March 3, the University will begin its campuswide effort to support the annual Vera House White Ribbon Campaign at the men’s basketball game against Clemson University in the Carrier Dome. The annual campaign runs throughout the month of March.
More than 90 student volunteers will distribute White Ribbon Campaign awareness wristbands and collect donations at each Dome entrance. Additionally, representatives from Vera House and Syracuse University will be in the backcourt providing information about the 24th Annual White Ribbon Campaign and on- and off-campus resources for sexual and relationship violence services and prevention.
The Vera House White Ribbon Campaign is an initiative led by men and encourages all members of the community to “Stand With Us” to end sexual and relationship violence. By wearing a white ribbon or wristband, community members demonstrate their support and commitment in ending violence.
To show your support, students, faculty and staff can purchase wristbands, lapel pins, paper ribbons, chocolates and window clings by contacting Denise Dowdall at firstname.lastname@example.org. Community members can also show their support by using #StandWithVeraHouse on social media, adding their name to the campaign pledge and attending the White Ribbon Campaign Walk on Friday, March 23, at noon in Clinton Square. Additional details are available on the White Ribbon Campaign webpage.
