Zonta Club of Key West raises awareness of gender-based violence

The Zonta Club of Key West launched the 16 Days of Activism on 21 November 2020 by tying orange ribbons around trees along North Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West to raise awareness of gender-based violence.

The City of Key West Commission also presented a proclamation to Zonta Club of Key West on 4 November in recognition of the 16 Days of Activism, permitting the display of the orange ribbons along North Roosevelt until 10 December.

Residents and visitors are encouraged to support the work by wearing orange during the 16 Days, helping to end violence against women, and eliminating the detrimental consequences it has on the well-being of the Key West community. If you or someone you know is experiencing violence against women, please call the Domestic Abuse Shelter 24-Hour Hotline at 305-743-4440 or text 305-240-0105.
