March to show your support for ending violence against women and girls

11 February 2022

Join a walk on Friday 25 February in Twickenham to raise awareness of the need to end violence against women and girls.

The short walk will begin at 5.30pm outside Radnor Gardens Café (TW1 4QG) and ends by Twickenham Green. Walkers will hand out White Ribbon leaflets which ask all men to promise to never commit, excuse, or remain silent about male violence against women. White Ribbon UK is the leading charity that engages with men and boys to end men’s violence against women.

The event is being organised by Cllr Ben Khosa, Richmond Council’s first White Ribbon Champion, who has the specific aim of driving forward the borough’s work to tackle violence against women and girls.

Cllr Ben Khosa said:

“We are planning a few of these walks throughout the borough to help spread the message that violence against women and girls will not be tolerated. We hope to see people join in and take collective responsibility for taking action to change behaviour. We need wholesale culture change to prevent violence before it starts, and we need to work together to achieve this. This is Richmond upon Thames standing up to end male violence against women and girls.”
