GIANTS March for White Ribbon Day

GIANTS to March for White Ribbon Day The GIANTS will march through Lakemba on White Ribbon Day on November 25 to help end violence against women.

The GIANTS will join more than 1000 people for the annual White Ribbon Day March in Lakemba next Wednesday. 

GIANTS co-captain and White Ribbon Ambassador Callan Ward, Chief Operating Officer Richard Griffiths and GIANTS staff will march from Gillies Street in Lakemba to Parry Park on White Ribbon Day, next Wednesday November 25.

The march through Lakemba will also include NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione, White Ribbon Australia CEO Libby Davies, White Ribbon Ambassador and Channel 7 personality Andrew O’Keefe.

White Ribbon is Australia’s only national, male led campaign to end men's violence against women. One woman a week in Australia is killed as a result of intimate partner violence, one in five Australian women experience harassment in the workplace and one in five women over the age of 18 will be stalked in their lifetime.

The GIANTS partnership with White Ribbons is part of the GIANTS Care program which delivers on the four key pillars of the club’s community agenda; health, harmony, education and employment. 

GIANTS Care is a major community initiative that will see the club double it’s community outcomes and further enrich the lives of people in Western Sydney.

White Ribbon was the club’s first community partner, and is one of the GIANTS’ four premium community partners. 

The GIANTS and Swans play for the White Ribbon Cup every time they play each other in the Sydney derby. 

The GIANTS’ Head of Community Ali Faraj and Community Engagement Coordinator Emad Elkheir feature in a video encouraging all members of the community to come and march to raise awareness for Australia’s campaign to prevent men’s violence against women.
