Zonta Club of Greater Reno partners with Domestic Violence Resource Center for 16 Days of Activism

The Domestic Violence Resource Center and Zonta Club of Greater Reno are partnering to bring awareness to the 16 Days of Activism.

“This year, leaders of the community including Reno City Attorney, Karl Hall, members of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), victim service providers, and many more are videotaping testimonials about their personal experiences or why they believe in standing against gender violence,” said Joy Orlich, President, Zonta Club of Greater Reno.

“We recognize the urgency of this ongoing collaboration due to the local, national and international toll that violence against all people, and specifically women, has on individuals, families and communities,” says Judi Howell, Executive Director, Domestic Violence Resource Center. “According to the U.N., 243 million women and girls between 15 and 49 were physically or sexually assaulted by an intimate partner last year. And, sadly, those are just the numbers we know about.”
