The 4th Annual Twin Cities Brides March Against Domestic Violence is a protest against domestic violence through the streets of St. Paul. Participants, most in bridal wear, walk alongside police officers for the three mile walk to the state Capitol. Participating in the march or becoming a sponsor will contribute to ongoing domestic violence awareness, prevention, and education in our community. After the march, a reception is held to celebrate the lives of those who were taken too soon and offers the chance for participants to build new friendships.
Domestic violence affects generations of families and everyone in the community. Our goal is to bring the problem of domestic violence out from the shadows and into the light, and speak out against it. Your voice can make a difference! Walk with us on June 21st!

Why Do We March in Wedding Dresses?
The Brides March is a visual protest against domestic violence. It provides an outlet for the community to speak out against domestic violence and pay tribute to every life that has been affected by domestic violence. We wear the wedding dress as a visual reminder of change. It represents the change that takes place when a loving relationship becomes abusive in any form. It represents the change that occurs when a life is taken at the hands of an abuser. It represents the changes that come when a life is free from abuse. The dress honors the lives that are cut short as a result of domestic violence, but it also serves as a symbol of hope and support for those who have survived and escaped violent relationships and living situations.
