From the Magazine of Santa Clarita:
Zonta “Says NO!” This 2013 campaign is to raise awareness of violence and increase actions to end violence against women and girls around the world. During the 16 Days of Activism, November 25 to December 10, Zonta International’s goal is for over 30,000 members in more than 1,200 clubs, in 64 countries to work simultaneously to prevent violence against women and girls in their communities.
For the 16 days of Activism in the community of Santa Clarita, Zonta will display a visual “mountain of shoes” in Westfield Valencia Town Center. Each shoe will represent a local victim of domestic violence – male and female. Red shoes will represent those individuals who have died as a result of domestic violence. Each shoe will represent an individual who has suffered domestic violence abuse; this “mountain of shoes” will be secured to a frame and have an attached tag to identify the age of each. Zonta, partnering with Domestic Violence Center, will provide educational information to those who view the “mountain” about the signs, symptoms and impact of domestic violence and abuse on victims and others.
Zonta’s annual Celebrity Tribute “Awesome Elegance” will honor Marlee Laufer, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Communications for Newhall Land, a contributor of community support and involvement extraordinaire. This event will be held November 8, at the Hyatt Valencia.
