The Zonta Club of Saint Sofia in Bulgaria, District 30, together with the Zonta clubs in another 62 countries on 5 continents, began their 6th year of recognizing the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign.
As of 25 November, the International Day of elimination of all forms of violence, our 16-day march of activism has started to proclaim help to the victims of violence.
In Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, this year, two emblematic buildings have been lit orange, the color of the campaign. The two buildings are the National Palace of Culture and the Sofia Opera and Ballet House.
Club members are grateful for those in the community who have already expressed support toward the campaign. This includes people in organizations such as the Sofia Taxi Company Radio SV Taxi, Sofia Electrotransport and Sofia Opera and Ballet.
This coming year, on the eve of Zonta International’s 100th anniversary, members from the Zonta Club of Saint Sofia will call to action those who witness or recognize violence or the victims of violence to contact the national hotline (0800 1 8676). Members hope this will help to protect and support victims.
