Queen of UK Gospel to Launch Haringey White Ribbon for Male Ambassadors
MOBO award winner and ‘Queen of Gospel’ Lurine Cato performed on 16 March at the prestigious Alexandra Palace to encourage more males to become ambassadors to end Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG).
The event marked the official launch of Haringey’s White Ribbon, a campaign to find male ambassadors to carry out community outreach work to tackle violence against women and girls and provide guidance for those who may be exposed to difficult situations.
Haringey’s Cabinet Member for Communities Cllr Eugene Ayisi said:
“We are determined to become a borough that does not commit, condone, or remain silent about VAWG, and all members of our community – including men and boys – have a part to play. Haringey White Ribbon underlines our commitment to supporting the international White Ribbon mission to tackle VAWG and support those affected by it.”
Haringey White Ribbon, which aims to recruit male ambassadors by November, is part of wider work being done by Haringey Council and partners to end VAWG. It offers organisations and the community the opportunity to come together to start developing a coordinated community response to tackling VAWG. The council is working towards achieving the White Ribbon Local Authority Award.
