About The March

History of the Redcliffe March

The Moreton Bay Says No To Violence annual march originated with annual events associated to White Ribbon Day events.

Over time the importance around advocacy and awareness in the region has grown. Appropriately, so has the support for the local event. 

The working committee supporting and organising the events could see it needed to become its own separate event, and in 2019 the Moreton Bay Says No To Violence Committee began.


 Only community march

The Moreton Bay Says No To Violence annual march is the only one of its kind in Queensland, Australia. The event is held on the last Friday in May to coincide with Domestic and Family Violence Prevention month in Queensland.

Why march? 

The annual Redcliffe march provides an opportunity for members of our community to stand up. Organisations, providers, businesses, schools, community leaders, and residents come together to advocate, educate and lead conversation in the broader community. Community gathering in a shared voice to ‘say no to violence’ is key to showing support to those experiencing violence, and acknowledging how we’ll change the landscape of offending within our community.
