The March Against Violence (MAV) is a yearly event hosted by Chrysalis Support Services. The aim of the MAV is to raise awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault and to promote healthy relationships in our community by inviting inspiring and educational speakers and marching through the streets of Geraldton. The street march is a visual demonstration of the strong partnerships within the greater city of Geraldton who are working towards a violence free community where healthy relationships prosper.
Each year we campaign and ask various groups to rise against violence. This year the theme of the MAV event is Youth Rising. The aim is to encourage the local youth to become active bystanders; to stand up and speak out against unhealthy behaviours. To be the change they want to see through becoming positive role models and future leaders. All youth have a part to play in the future as the next generation, and we as a community can support and encourage them to make those positive “stands and steps” now.
