White Ribbon Committees are formal groups who represent White Ribbon Australia in their community. They have embraced the White Ribbon social change movement to prevent men’s violence against women and support the national office to coordinate and inform White Ribbon Australia activity in their state/territory or region. Committee members are passionate individuals from across the community, including from the public and private sectors, domestic and family violence service providers, other not-for-profit organisations, sports clubs and educational institutions.
White Ribbon Committees play a critical role in supporting White Ribbon Australia to coordinate local action, foster positive relationships and ensure the work of White Ribbon is reflective of community needs.
There are two main types of White Ribbon Committees: State/Territory Committee and Regional Committee. In addition, there are also numerous White Ribbon Community Action Groups who play an integral part in the White Ribbon social change movement.
