The event holds particular gravitas this year as we launch our new campaign focus and work closely with Women’s Aid to implement this.8 All Party Parliamentary Group Representation in parliament is essential to White Ribbon’s reach, longevity and fairness as a charity. It means we can affect change both within parliament itself, and have an impact on constituencies too. We are delighted to see the APPG reform this year.2WHITE RIBBON NEWSLETTER9 Music Campaign So much work is needed in the music industry to create safer environments, better security and fully trained staff. White Ribbon have joined forces with SoRM in Bradord to assist in making this happen.
