White Ribbon Scotland is teaming up with Scottish Women's Aid, Edinburgh Hollaback! Zero Tolerance and other partners to hold the first 'Side by Side' event in Scotland.
Side By Side
When? Tuesday 3rd December, 12pm - 4pm
Where? The Hub, Top of Edinburgh's Royal Mile at 12pm; Dynamic Earth at 2pm
Why? To raise funds and awareness for organisations working to prevent violence against women
What is happening? Men and women (as self- defined) will be teaming up to participate in a three-legged race from Edinburgh Castle to Dynamic Earth. The event will take place from 12pm until roughly 2pm, when a panel event will take place in Dynamic Earth. Featuring men who have played part in the movement to end violence against women, the panel discussion will be chaired by a member of the Scottish Women's Aid team and will take place between 2pm and 4pm.
The event will be a mixture of a celebration of the progress that has been made in men and women working together to tackle violence against women over the years, and also a reminder of the journey yet to be completed. Add fun to the mixture and we are looking forward to an enjoyable event as we look to mark this year's 16 Days of Action to End Violence Against Women !
We need men and women to team up - you can register as a pair, or as an individual in which case we will do the rest! All you really need to do is raise a minimum of £20 between you. Places for both parts of the event are limited so please register your place soon to avoid missing out! You will have the chance to raise funds for one of the partner organisations supporting the event; please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for sponsor forms and further information about the event.
