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 the support for the local event has also.
The working Committee supporting and organising the events could see it needed to become it’s 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 it’s kind in Queensland, Australia.
The annual Redcliffe March is providing 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 show the support to those experiencing violence, and how we’ll change the landscape of offending within our community too.
