Help put an end to violence against women and girls by joining one of the free local events taking place to mark White Ribbon Day and the UN’s 16 Days of Activism to stand with those affected by gender-based violence and work together to make Brent safer.
This Friday (25 November) is White Ribbon Day, a national moment led by the White Ribbon charity that aims to engage men and boys to end violence against women and girls.
It also marks the start of the UN’s 16 Days of Activism, which encourages people to take action against gender-based violence. That could be as simple as sharing your views on how to make local places safer or calling out gender-based violence if you see it happening. The campaign aims to turn 16 days into 365 days of action to advance women’s human rights across the world.
Brent Council is supporting these national campaigns with a variety of free events and is calling for everyone to get involved.
- Public vigil - Join us as we remember the victims of gender-based violence in a public vigil on Friday 25 November at 4pm at Brent Civic Centre. This will be followed by a candlelit walk to Wembley Central Station, which will take around 20 minutes. There is no need to sign-up in advance.
- Time to Talk event – Come along to share your experiences of gender-based violence and views on how we can work together to make Brent safer. The Time to Talk event will take place on Thursday 1 December from 6-8pm at Brent Civic Centre. Sign-up to secure your free ticket.
