In 2008, staff from across Council formed the Darebin White Ribbon Action Team. The team’s vision is ‘A community free of violence against women’. This voluntary group, now comprised of 14 men and women, meets monthly to plan activities, events and initiatives that aim to raise awareness of the White Ribbon Campaign and the need to end male violence against women.
We are pleased to announce that the founding member of the White Ribbon Action Team, Nick Mazzarella, was awarded national White Ribbon Ambassador of the Year for 2010.
The work of the Darebin White Ribbon Action Team is highlighted in the Preventing Violence Against Women Achievements Report 2006-2011, below.
