Take a Stand Against Violence!
White Ribbon Campaign

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month and a great time for young men and their fathers to wear a white ribbon to take a public stance against violence with the White Ribbon Pledge:

WHITE RIBBON PLEDGE

I PLEDGE NEVER TO COMMIT, CONDONE OR REMAIN SILENT ABOUT VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN, CHILDREN AND INTIMATE PARTNERS. 

FROM THIS DAY FORWARD, I PROMISE TO TALK TO FAMILY, FRIENDS AND CO-WORKERS ABOUT STOPPING VIOLENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY.

I PROMISE TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO DO THE SAME AND I PROMISE TO LEAD THEM BY EXAMPLE. 

THIS WHITE RIBBON I AM WEARING WILL REMIND ME OF THIS PLEDGE.

Father Involvement in Family Planning

A healthy father plans to have a baby at the best time for his family.  

What can men do to prevent or plan a pregnancy?

  • learn about male and female methods of birth control - bedsider.org
  • talk with your partner about birth control before you have sex
  • listen to your partner and respect their feelings
  • use condoms for protection from pregnancy, STIs and HIV
  • support your female partner with her birth control method

If your family is big enough and you don't want any more children, consider a vasectomy
