The Zonta Clubs of St. Catharines, Fort Erie Area and Niagara Falls, Canada in District 4 launched their Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign on the evening of 24 November.

To mark the beginning of the 16 Days of Activism, the clubs held a candlelight walk at the Niagara Falls. After the walk, the American and Horseshoe Falls were bathed in orange.

There were several speakers at the event, including District 4 Governor Lori Robinson, the president of the Zonta Club of Niagara Falls, the representative from the parks commission and the head of the Women’s Centre. In addition, a local drumming and singing group performed.

“The Zonta Clubs of the Niagara peninsula are proud to be involved,” said Nicki Inch, advocacy chairwoman with the Zonta Club of Niagara Falls, told Niagara Falls Review.
