Brighton & Hove Albion are once again proud to be supporting the White Ribbon Campaign, and today saw the first of 16 days of awareness to end violence against women.
The White Ribbon Campaign is a project, led by men, to raise awareness of the role that men and boys can take in preventing violence against women.
Wearing a White Ribbon is a personal pledge never to commit, condone nor remain silent about such violence and on Saturday ahead of the match against Birmingham City chief executive Paul Barber will sign the pledge on behalf of the club ahead of kick-off.

Albion striker Bobby Zamora said, “Almost half of all women in the UK experience domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking. Those numbers are daughters, sisters, wives, girlfriends and friends.
"I know that as a footballer I have a unique opportunity to act as a positive role model for the fans and I want to use my profile and the profile of the club to raise awareness of the issue.”
Take the pledge. Just like in football, no single player can win a match, it takes teamwork. Join Bobby and all of us at the Albion and do what you can to help.
