Zonta Club Receives Proclamation from City of Santa Clarita During 16 Days of Activism
Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley took part in the “Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women” campaign from November 25 to December 10. A “Zonta Says No” banner was prominently dis-played on McBean Parkway at Sunset Hills.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, interacting with the public was a little different compared to past years. During our campaign, we shared posts on Facebook and Instagram every day from 8am-8pm to promote awareness about the 16 days of activism. Topics included: Orange Day, Bullying, Zonta Says No, Gender Equality, #HeForShe, Ending Child Marriage, Domestic Vio-lence, Female Genital Mutilation, Human Trafficking, Human Slavery, the Red Dress Project, and Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women. Our website’s blog page also shared valuable information which mirrored our social media campaign.
Advocating with the City of Santa Clarita on an annual basis is an important part of the club’s 16 Days of Activism. Once again, the club received a proclamation from our City of Santa Clari-ta. Club members wore orange shirts to signify “Orange the World”. The color orange is used for International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women which is on November 25.
In addition, our newly installed Z Club at Golden Valley High School and Zonta Club of SCV hosted a Zoom Workshop on December 5th about “Recognizing Unhealthy Relationships”. Larry Schallert, L.C.S.W. and Leah Parker discussed characteristics of a healthy relationship and how to prevent dating violence.
Finally, our advocacy committee created a new service project, “Human Trafficking Survivor Backpacks”. The backpacks contain personal comfort items that will be packed into backpacks and will be carried by law enforcement to be given to rescued survivors of human trafficking.
