The mission of  Zonta International, of which the Club of Tallahassee (ZCT) is a member, is to  empower women worldwide through service and advocacy. In support of this mission, the ZCT has approved a resolution supporting increased training and awareness programs for workplaces in Florida regarding human trafficking.   We expect legislation to be considered during the current legislative session.  We encourage other advocacy groups to support the establishment of these programs.  Here is our resolution:

2018-19 President's Message 

 

Welcome to the  Zonta Club of Tallahassee!  As part of Zonta International, our Club works to empower women and girls in our community through numerous service and advocacy projects.  This year, we will continue our partnership with Refuge House to serve victims of sexual violence, with Hope Community to contribute to the elimination of homelessness among women and their children, with PACE to serve as mentors to young women working hard to improve their lives through education, and with the Survive and Thrive Advocacy Center (STAC) to prevent and promote awareness of human trafficking in our community. We are happy to add Girls on the Run this year to our service projects. Hope Community Service Project also added the young ladies of the Department of Children and Families Fostering Success Program as recipients to their services as well. 

 To accomplish these efforts, our members raise funds for and individually participate in these organizations, among others.  My theme this year is "we have the drive to make a difference in the women and girls in our community"!  I know we will touch the lives of many in our community and will continue to make a difference in the lives we come in contact with.

                                                                Jeanna Olson
