The Zonta Club of Rockhampton, District 22 Australia, launched the Domestic and Family Violence Safety Card at the Zonta Says NO Information Booth at the Rockhampton Heritage Markets on 24 November as part of the Zonta Says NO Campaign. The cards were produced by the Women’s Health Centre in Rockhampton and sponsored by the Rockhampton Zonta Club.
A joint effort at the information booth by members of the Zonta Club and representatives of Women’s Health focused on promoting the safety of individuals and families, believing that it is a person’s right to be safe from violence and abuse.
A large number of brochures, cards and posters were made available detailing a lot of information regarding the problem. The very popular Heritage Markets boast a passing traffic of 6,500, so the opportunity to spread the word was significant.
