Mass. to Begin Annual ‘White Ribbon Day’ Campaign
Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley and former state Sen. Jarrett Barrios will serve as co-chairs of this year’s campaign. Jane Doe Inc., a Massachusetts coalition against sexual assault and domestic violence, is set to begin the campaign Thursday.
The campaign seeks to engage men who are ready to help make a difference in their families, their workplaces and their communities.
On the first Thursday of March, Jane Doe hosts a statewide “White Ribbon Day” as the campaign’s centerpiece.
The international campaign began two years after the Montreal Massacre on Dec. 6, 1989, when a 25-year-old man opened fire and killed 14 female students.
