Zonta Club of Kankakee kicks off National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

The Zonta Club of Kankakee, USA, kicked off National Domestic Violence Awareness Month with a domestic violence shelter at a farmer's market.

Every week, hundreds of visitors come to the farmer's market to shop, and there, the club shared information about domestic violence, answered questions and shared about the mission of Zonta with a representative from the shelter. It was very impactful as they heard from survivors and visitors unaware of the magnitude of domestic violence within their community.

The club also met several women interested in hearing more about Zonta and attending a meeting. Even while members took opportunities to walk around the market, their shirts allowed conversation.
