Red Rose rallies began in Brisbane in 2010 and have been held whenever a woman, child or young people has been murdered because of Domestic or Family Violence.

Red Rose Rallies were first held in NSW in 2008 to advocate for the implementation of a DFV Review Board. This came about after the murder of a woman, Evelina Gavrilovic in a shopping centre car park. She was found with red roses near her body and covered in her own blood. She was murdered by her ex-husband who had been stalking her since she left him.  The rallies ceased in NSW with the establishment of the DFV Review Board.  However Red Rose Rallies are still held in Queensland to this day.

We are asking attendees to wear black and bring a red rose to be placed in remembrance.
