White Ribbon Day

White Ribbon Day

White Ribbon Day is an international campaign where men and boys pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence towards women and girls.

People all over the world wear a white ribbon on the 25th of November until the 16th of December to show that they support the campaign.

This year in Nottingham, Beats and Brains, a young people’s sex education project, have produced a music track to promote awareness of domestic abuse in teenage relationships

The song is called 'Man Enough' and features local music artistes 2Tone and Kamar alongside established rappers Scorcher and Klashnekoff. The song encourages men to explore their values and beliefs around violence against women and girls and supports the 'Man Enough' campaign ethos; to encourage men not to commit, condone or stay silent about domestic abuse.

 The single launched two weeks ago and in that time the video has had over 4000 views on YouTube. The Link to the video can be found here.

To celebrate the launch of the single and White Ribbon Day, the Beats and Brains team are holding a drop in event that will be held today 25th November from 7 till 10pm at Antenna Media Centre, Beck Street, Nottingham. There will be live music performances and live theatre. The event is open to anyone aged 14+.
