Zonta Club of Hunter Newcastle distributes posters with emergency contact information for domestic violence survivors

In collaboration with Lake Macquarie City Council, the Zonta Club of Hunter Newcastle, Australia, distributed domestic violence emergency phone numbers posters to all public libraries, council parks, neighborhood centers, swimming centers, surf clubs, gyms and public toilets in local shopping malls.

An article about the campaign in a local newspaper was published at the beginning of November and posters were distributed by club members and council employees over a two-week period in November. The posters provide emergency contact information for women who find themselves in danger of domestic violence and homelessness, an important step towards empowering women in our local area.
