Join us for our annual White Ribbon Event!
Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center is thrilled to be back in-person for our 11th annual White Ribbon event, Pledge for Change.
This year, we invite the members of our communities to gather together and pledge their support to end gender-based violence. This evening event will raise critically needed funds for our Youth Empowerment Services (YES). The Center’s YES programs work to foster healthy, safe and equitable relationships for youth, and help them thrive through meaningful connections in safer communities.
Join us on Thursday, March 30th at Andover Country Club and hear directly from students about the benefits of these programs. The event will also feature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a buffet, a live and silent auction, and the opportunity to pledge your support to the White Ribbon Campaign alongside other members of your community.
We anticipate Pledge for Change to be a powerful and moving evening we won’t soon forget! We hope you will join us. If you cannot attend the event and still want to help us raise critically needed funds for our Youth Empowerment Services, you can make a donation here.

History of White Ribbon
White Ribbon is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, promote gender equity, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity.
Our annual White Ribbon event is part of this global human rights movement to help end gender-based violence. The White Ribbon Campaign is currently active in over 60 countries; in 2007, Jane Doe Inc. launched the Massachusetts White Ribbon Day campaign and joined this international human rights effort.
The White Ribbon Day Pledge:
“From this day forward, I promise to be part of the solution in ending violence against women and all gender-based violence.”
