UNH White Ribbon Campaign
The White Ribbon Campaign is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, promote gender equity and healthy relationships. During the month of April UNH men can take an active role in preventing violence against women. SHARPP is sponsoring the fourth annual UNH White Ribbon Campaign (WRC) during the month of April. By wearing a white ribbon, men take a personal pledge to:
“NEVER COMMIT, CONDONE, NOR REMAIN SILENT ABOUT VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN”
This year our WRC campaign has a unique goal. With approximately 7,484 men on campus consisting of 6,201 students and 1,283 faculty and staff our goal is to get 1,000 (a little more than 10% of the total population*) men to take the pledge.
Over 1,000 UNH Men took the pledge! (1,053 to be exact!)
Take a look at our video for the 2013 UNH White Ribbon Campaign.
This year, UNH Police Detective Eric Kulberg has joined the campaign by leading an effort to highlight 30 men, one each day during the month of April, who will be photographed wearing a white ribbon. Each man will be quoted regarding what he plans to do to end sexual violence against women. These profiles will be posted on the UNH Police and SHARPP Facebook pages.
In addition, UNH Associate Head Men’s Soccer Coach Ewan Seabrook has joined the campaign by coordinating to involve members of the UNH athletics department, staff and student athletics.
Take a look at our video for the White Ribbon Campaign (WRC) produced last year. We asked men at UNH what they would do to end violence against women.

Can Women Join the White Ribbon Campaign?
The White Ribbon Campaign is only for men. However, women are encouraged to wear the teal Sexual Assault Awareness Month ribbon pin. These can be obtained by visiting/contacting the SHARPP office or at our table in the MUB throughout the month of April.
