16 Days of Activism



Plans for the 16 Days of Activism are quickly being finalized by the Kenmore Zonta Club.  During this campaign there will be 3 portable outdoor signs strategically placed throughout Kenmore and Tonawanda drawing attention to the existence of domestic violence. These signs will also provide information about help that is available to women who are seeking resources to overcome this violence.

Kenmore Zonta Club has also been working with the Kenmore Library in arranging for a program on November 29 entitled Prevention of Abuse Through Healthy Relationships. Ava Thomas from the Family Justice Center will be the guest speaker.  This event is open to all and will be from 7-8 pm at the Kenmore Library. All area high schools have been contacted and encouraged to attend.

A display about Zonta and the 16 Days of Activism campaign with facts about gender- based violence will be displayed in the Kenmore Library display case for the month of November.

A collection of urgently needed items by Haven House for their residents will also be ongoing throughout the community during the 16 Days campaign.

On December 9 the Zonta Club of Kenmore will hold a Breakfast with Santa event and all proceeds will be used in the community to benefit survivors of domestic violence.

On November 15 an article about Zonta and the 16 Days campaign appeared in the Ken-Ton Bee.
