Step Out Against Violence Albury-Wodonga was created as an event to stand beside, but in solidarity with White Ribbon - and now that the national organisation has collapsed, the Border event is all the more important.
The third march will take place on November 23 and is being promoted in the front window of Farrah House on Swift Street.
The display was the idea of Step Out committee member Danielle Thompson, who works for the Women's Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Service.
"It's where we start the march, so it's in a perfect location," she said.
"We're building it as an annual event.
"Wodonga Council put it in the 16 Days of Activism Against Violence calendar and we'd really like Albury Council adopting it as an annual event.
"This is a local event founded by community members and supported by organisations.
"There was a demand from the community for something grassroots."
Judy Langridge, who was among those driving the first event with staff at the Albury Community Health Sexual Assault Service, said the march always made her feel empowered.
"For me it was to shut down the streets and make a really safe space, and with the Army there, it will probably be the safest place in the country," she said.
"Physically taking back the space - and making a fuss about it - gives you power as a survivor."
Fellow committee member Danny Baxter said the event was becoming stronger, including financially.
"This year we wanted to promote the local action groups - the Albury Wodonga Domestic and Family Violence Committee's chair Amanda Cohn will be speaking, and Justin Clancy as well," he said.

"Phil Cleary was a really great person to have involved last year and he's keen to stay engaged.
"We'd love for the community to come down and share their feedback."
