The Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs will once again take to the streets again this Friday 25 November in support of White Ribbon’s campaign to eliminate men's violence against women and children.
For the third successive year Bulldogs players and staff will link up with an expected 3000 people for Lakemba’s White Ribbon walk, starting at 5.30pm in Gillies Street and finishing at Parry Park in Punchbowl Road and they’re encouraging Members and supporters to join them.
White Ribbon Ambassador Steve Turner will be part of the march. This week the Bulldogs are also supporting several White Ribbon events across south west Sydney including Cumberland Councils' White Ribbon Breakfast, Liverpool Council BBQ and the Bankstown Girls High White Ribbon Day assembly.
Founder of the White Ribbon campaign and world leading expert Dr Michael Kauffman has also addressed the entire Bulldogs playing group and office staff, highlighting how they can contribute to improving a situation that sees an average of one woman a week killed by a current or former intimate partner.
“Domestic violence continues to be a significant issue across Australia and the Bulldogs remain firmly committed to assisting White Ribbon in their campaign to create a future free from violence and abuse,” said Bulldogs CEO Raelene Castle.
“This week we are using our profile to engage students, parents, our players, staff and supporters in conversations about how we can stand up, speak out and act to end violence against women.”
