The Zonta Club of Ashtabula Area, District 5, brought orange to Ashtabula County to kick off the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign.
Members brought together the Ashtabula County Commissioners, a representative from their U.S. Representative’s office, Ashtabula County Auditor, Ashtabula County Lift Bridge Association President, plus members and family members to advocate for the Zonta Says NO campaign.
With the reading of two proclamations given by the County Commissioners and Representative David Joyce, the Ashtabula Lift Bridge was lit in orange light. It will stay lit orange throughout the 16 days.
The campaign was covered in both local Ashtabula papers, social media and now is the talk of the town. Zonta members in Ashtabula will continue to advocate to stop violence, locally and globally.
