Message from our President

Zonta is an international organization dedicated to empowering women through service and advocacy. It isn’t always easy – but it is always rewarding. We lift our voices and our actions to make a difference locally, nationally and internationally.

Currently our club focus is on women’s mental health. We know that in our local community there simply are not the resources needed by women who suffer from mental health issues. We also know that poverty, violence, homelessness and addiction often go hand in hand with mental health issues.

We hope you will join us as a member, or a volunteer, to bring change to our community near and far, and give women power and strength.

Our Mission

Zonta International is a leading global organization of professionals empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy.

Our Vision

Zonta International envisions a world in which women’s rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential. In such a world, women have access to all resources and are represented in decision-making positions on an equal basis with men. In such a world, no woman lives in fear of violence.

Global Initiatives

We will End Child Marriage

Almost 650 million women alive today were married before turning 18.

We say NO to Violence Against Women and Girls

About 2 in 3 women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence from an intimate partner.

We will Close the Gender Gap in education

Every additional year of primary school increases girls’ eventual wages by 10 – 20 percent.
