In November, 2013, Zonta Club of Auburn, along with Zonta members throughout the world, kicked off “16 Days of Activism” against gender violence, an international campaign originating from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991. Zonta International’s nearly 1200 clubs in 65 countries are participating in this effort within their local communities to support ZONTA says NO, a campaign to raise awareness of and increase actions to end violence against women and girls around the world through service and advocacy.
For 16 days, beginning November 25, Zonta Club of Auburn members wore the international ZONTA says NO campaign emblem, an orange ribbon, along with a badge that asks everyone who sees it to “ASK” about the orange ribbon. Each member is eager to provide a brief explanation of the campaign in an effort to raise awareness of local efforts to reduce violence against women and girls in our community.
The Zonta Club of Auburn exists to be the premier local service organization devoted to advancing the status of women. This is achieved through the participation of our diverse membership in hands on service projects and fund raising for grants and programs. The Zonta Club of Auburn, NY has members from Auburn and Cayuga County. We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm at local restaurants, primarily at Springside Inn. Reservations are required by the Friday before the meeting. The dinner cost is $22.00.
