Zonta Says No to Violence Against Women!
The community now has awareness of the Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley (SCV) and Zonta International (ZI) initiative to address violence against women locally and worldwide. Zontians walked in the 4th of July parade through downtown Newhall and Valencia as they chanted “Zonta says No to Violence Against Women”! They were followed by the upcoming 2020 Zonta International President – Sharon Langenbeck – riding in a vintage Ford Mustang and Zontians riding in the balloon and banner decorated City Trolley.
The crowd waved, cheered and raised ‘thumbs-up’ to our message of awareness about stopping “violence against women” worldwide. “Zonta Says No to Violence Against Women” was launched in 2012 by ZI to raise awareness of the issue; the campaign has evolved to address human trafficking, one of the most widespread human right’s violations in the world. Ending Child Marriage is a ZI project designed to promote local and national governments and community commitment in 12 countries that will change attitudes to hopefully end child, early and forced marriage – one of the worst obstacles girls are facing globally and a severe human right’s violation.
Locally, the Zonta Club strives to empower women through service and advocacy. LifeForward Workshops, Stemming the Tide of Human Trafficking, Domestic Court Advocacy and Girls’ Robotics programs are designed to assist women and girls in the community. Scholarships help women who strive for further education and Grants help organizations with projects that improve the lives of women.
