Zonta Club of Auburn stops traffic to stop violence

The Zonta Club of Auburn and its Z Club met at Auburn’s City Hall, on the 28th of November, and began a demonstration with a walk with a Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women banner to the Loop Rd. where the club members stopped and stood in a line to show their support of the 16 Days of Activism campaign. The concept of stopping traffic for 16 minutes was in direct response to the stop violence 16 day campaign. Christine Alexander, member of the Zonta Club of Auburn, created a video of a portion of the demonstration set to music with visuals of women and young girls who have been victims.

The club had a live blogger on the walk who pushed the demonstration out as it was happening, and the club had direct feedback. The club then put the video on its Facebook page and people are sharing it and commenting. The club found it very powerful to share this message and moment with the Z club members who walked beside them and got to see what Zonta works toward worldwide.
