Zonta Club of Charlevoix join hands to raise awareness of domestic violence

Every year, from 25 November through 10 December, Zonta Club of Charlevoix, Michigan members join hands with Zontians around the world to raise awareness of domestic violence. On 25 November, from 11:45 am to 12:15 pm, Zonta Charlevoix members stood in silence with local law enforcement (Charlevoix City Police Chief Gerard Doan and Charlevoix County Sheriff Chuck Vondra) to lend credence to Zonta Charlevoix’s 2020 campaign ‘TIED TOGETHER THROUGH VIOLENCE’. Club members held fast to an orange silk scarf (with knots every six feet to promote social distancing), with orange scarves tied around their necks, and orange masks covering their faces. Zonta Charlevoix says NO to Violence Against Women. With a Mayoral Proclamation issued 16 November 2020 by City of Charlevoix Mayor Luther Kurtz, 10 December 2020 has been officially declared as “END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN DAY IN CHARLEVOIX”.
