Walk for Respect


Walk for RESPECT – in this Peaceful Parade

Saturday 25 November 2023

Since 2018, Rotary in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands have been uniting to build awareness and education programmes to help our community identify, reduce and stop physical Domestic Violence and non-physical Coercive Control offending.

Now it is South Australia’s turn to shine. We would like YOU to participate in a peaceful and non-confrontational Walk for Respect along King William Street, Adelaide, on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women – Saturday 25 November 2023. Although, we also all well recognise that Domestic Violence is a major problem for men and children as well.

The walk from Victoria Square to the Pioneer Womens Memorial Garden opposite the Festival Theatre is quite short. But our hope is for the TV and Media cameras to support the campaign.

Meet in Victoria Square : from 9am

Find the Group you will be walking with : between 9am and 10am

Our Walk for Respect : starts at 10am

Walk 1.2km along King William Street, to the Pioneer Womens Memorial Garden (next to the Torrens Parade Ground) : 10am to 10.30am

Inspirational Presentations in the garden : 10.30am to 11am

A focus of our Parade will be raising awareness of Coercive Control in our society.

Our focus will be to deliver an educational walk to offer the wider community an insight into key signs of Coercive Control against Women • Men • Children!
