A new display in the Library lobby, presented by Zonta Club of Porterville, hopes to bring awareness to the tragedies of gender-based violence.


The 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence is an international campaign that commences on 25 November – the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women – and ends on the 10 December, Human Rights Day.


Zonta Club of Porterville, founded in 1948, is a member of Zonta International, a worldwide service organization of members working together to advance the status of women through service and advocacy. Over the past 10 years, our club has donated over $160,000 toward community, international service projects and scholarships in addition to thousands of hours towards hands-on projects.


Please stop by the display the next time you are on campus. For more information on Zonta, visit https://zontaclubofporterville.org/
