Jessica Miles, Violence Prevention Educator
With this wonderful winter wonderland that we are living in right now I wanted to extend an invitation to attend the Lake State Lakers and Diane Peppler Resource Center for the White Out Violence game on January 12th. The game starts at 7 pm on Friday the 12th, where we will be giving out long sleeve shirts to the attendees. My hope is to turn the inside of the Taffy Abel Arena white like there was a hole in the ceiling and the snow covered all the seats.
The White Ribbon Campaign was started in Toronto, Canada in 1991 by a group of men and boys to end violence against women and girls, promoting gender equality, a new vision of masculinity, and healthy relationships. White Ribbon campaign is now in over 60 countries around the world and is one of the largest movements. The White Ribbon Campaign asks men and boys to never commit violence, stand up, and speak out against violence against women and girls. By attending the game and wearing the free shirts you are showing your support during our White Out campaign to end violence all together. We want all to be the change that society needs to end violence.
We will have informational booths and stands to visit with people and get more information. We are also always in search of volunteers that would like to help. Stop at the Diane Peppler Resource Center table and take a short survey to enter our drawing to receive the prize which will be announced during half time. I hope all can make it to show your support to end violence.
