White Ribbon Day

Thank you for your feedback on LLDC’s consultation on the safety of Women and Girls in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park/Legacy Corporation Area.

Today is White Ribbon Day – an international awareness day calling for communities, organisations and people to come together and say ‘no’ to male violence against women and girls.

In solidarity with the campaign, London Stadium has lit up with a message of support on its external screen – one of the largest digital screens in Europe.

We hope that this will encourage more people to have a conversation about White Ribbon Day means and why it is so important.

To find out more about the campaign and the White Ribbon Promise visit: https://www.whiteribbon.org.uk/what-we-do and join the conversation on social media using the hashtags #WhiteRibbon #AllMenCan and #MakeThePromise.

From today, until Human Rights Day on Friday 10 December, are the 16 Days of Action – with men everywhere asked to make the promise to “never commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women”.

There is a lot of activity planned in our local boroughs, including a full programme of events from London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Keep an eye on their Twitter account here for more details.

We’d also like to share that we have extended our consultation deadline until 13 December , for feedback on the safety of women and girls across the Legacy Corporation area. Please continue to share your feedback, and share this consultation with any friends, family or colleagues who might also want to share their views.

As ever, if you have any questions or have any other comments you’d like to offer, please email us at womens-safety@londonlegacy.co.uk

Thank you again for sharing your comments with us.
