Nottinghamshire men please pledge here. If you have a minute, please state where you work/study/socialise, or where you heard about this campaign.
With just one click, you will be added to the growing number of men who want to 'call time' on domestic abuse towards women and girls. In doing this, you stand shoulder to shoulder with prominent sportsmen, local celebrities, industry leaders, and thousands of other men around the world, who, like us, are strongly opposed to abuse against women and girls.'
Our target is for 10,000 men to sign up to this pledge in Nottinghamshire, showing their support for the campaign. This will show that men in Nottinghamshire are Man Enough - to say No to domestic abuse. 1 in 4 women are affected by domestic abuse in their lifetime and each week at least 2 women are killed by their partner or ex-partner. By signing this pledge we hope to raise awareness of domestic abuse, the effect it has on women and girls and help to reduce these statistics.
