The Zonta Club of Glens Falls efforts for the 16 Days of Activism included activities to raise awareness of violence against women in their community and to provide information about resources available for victims of abuse. On 3 December, members of the club gathered in City Park in downtown Glens Falls in an informational rally. The location was close to the local Glens Falls Transit bus stop where three city busses displayed the Zonta Says No to Violence Against Women message. The nearby Civic Center marquee displayed the same Zonta Says No logo. Club members asked local businesses to show support of the 16 Days of Activism by displaying placards and posters in their windows facing the main streets in the core of downtown Glens Falls.

With the help of many local businesses including Nemer Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge and Glens Falls National Bank, the Zonta Club of Glens Falls successfully “painted the town orange” for the 16 Days of Activism.
