People have been asking where to get white ribbons in Wales:
Following his election to the National Assembly for Wales, Jack Sargeant has been working hard to ensure his dad’s work and legacy is continued. Carl Sargeant was a keen advocate for victims, survivors and services that support people who have experienced domestic abuse. He spent much of his time working to improve services including initiating the Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act 2015.
To raise awareness of this issue, Jack recently wrote to the Assembly’s Presiding Officer. Following discussions on the matter, it has been agreed that the white ribbon will be sold in the Tŷ Hywel shop throughout November. It has also been agreed that the white ribbon will be sold in the Senedd shop during November.
Commenting on the announcement, Jack Sargeant said,
Domestic violence is the biggest killer of girls and women aged 16-44. I believe we should make the white ribbon readily available for the general public to make the pledge to never excuse, commit or remain silent about male violence against women.
I’m delighted that the Presiding Officer has agreed to sell the White Ribbon in the Senedd shop. It will give visitors the opportunity to learn more about this issue and buy a ribbon.
