East Bridgewater-The Massachusetts White Ribbon Day Campaign mobilizes men and boys throughout the year to:
• Foster a positive image of masculinity and join in a celebration of personal peace and cooperation.
• Change societal attitudes and beliefs that perpetuate and make excuses for violence against women.
• Promote safety and respect in all relationships and situations.
• Build a network of resounding voices that will support and advance Jane Doe Inc. (JDI) initiatives and JDI members
Today, the East Bridgewater Police Department with its team of male officers alongside our female officers and civilian personnel, make a personal pledge to live by the values of the campaign and a public commitment to invite other men and boys in their lives to join us. By bringing additional visibility to the campaign, we want to help break the silence on these issues and shift the social norm about men’s roles in ending violence against women.
This morning, March 1st, is recognized throughout Massachusetts as White Ribbon Day. The East Bridgewater Police Department invites men and boys across our town, state and country to be part of the solution in ending violence against women.
This morning, EBPD Officers Tallitha Connor and Cecelia Cacciatore, alongside Chief Scott Allen and Deputy Chief Paul O’Brien and a team of officers, placed a White Ribbon Campaign Day Proclamation Poster in the station’s lobby and will work to share this message throughout our community.
