Zonta Club of Lohja, Finland, in District 20 chose partnered with young people in the town for the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign.

The club turned the local youth center orange to raise awareness about violence against women and girls. The building, where young people gather daily both for spare time and for municipal youth services, is illuminated orange during the 16 Days of Activism.

The orange color outside the building is communicating the important message of the campaign, strengthened by the local media. In addition, young people who use the center’s services are getting information about the topics close to the youth during the days of activism, such as violence in relationships and harrasment on social media, at school or at work.

Information about everyone’s right to education, not only in Finland but worldwide, was spread, as well as facts about human trafficking in the world.
