The Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley received a proclamation from the City for their efforts in taking part in the “Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women” campaign in November 2020, officials said Tuesday.
The 16 days of activism took place between Nov. 25 to Dec. 10, according to Zonta Club officials.
Due to the pandemic, club officials showed support against violence via Facebook and Instagram during the 16 day period.
Topics that were covered by Zonta included Orange Day, Bullying, Zonta Says No, Gender Equality, #HeForShe, Ending Child Marriage, Domestic Violence, Female Genital Mutilation, Human Trafficking, Human Slavery, the Red Dress Project and Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, according to officials.
The Santa Clarita Zonta Club’s website blog page also shared valuable information that mirrored the 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 the City of Santa Clarita in 2021, according to officials.
Club members wore orange shirts to signify “Orange the World,” with the color orange being used for International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women which is on November 25, according to officials.
The Santa Clarita Valley Zonta Says No to Violence Against Women banner was prominently displayed on McBean Parkway at Sunset Hills Drive, according to officials.
