Zonta says NO to
violence against women
This display is a visual representation of victims of domestic violence, mostly women and girls. Red shoes equate to violence that resulted in the victim’s death.
Aloha Diaper Bank
The Zonta Club of Oahu regularly volunteers at an Aloha Diaper Bank “Wrap Party.” From a full palette, members made 25-diaper bundles for distribution.
Moms On a Mission Hawai’i established the Aloha Diaper Bank in 2018, after learning that 1 in 3 families are unable to afford diapers for their babies and that most subsidized assistance programs do not cover the cost of diapers. Aloha Diaper Bank is a member of the National Diaper Bank Network.
JOIN US FOR DENIM DAY
Around the world, millions of people will wear jeans with a purpose to show that there is no excuse and never an invitation to harass, abuse, assault, rape!
WHY JEANS ON DENIM DAY?
Denim Day recalls an Italian Supreme Court case that sparked international outrage when a judge overturned a lower court’s conviction of a rapist. Because the victim wore tight jeans, the judge ruled that she must have helped her attacker remove them, thus implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim.
This is an effective way to support Sexual Assault Awareness Month!
Every year, parts of the US and countries all over the world suffer from natural and man-made disasters. In those times, we endeavor to provide support to organizations responding to crises.
We regularly clean the pilot Amelia Earhart plaque at the Diamond Head Lookout outside Waikiki.
Famed aviator Amelia Earhart was a Zontian. The Amelia Earhart Fellowship was established in her honor in 1938.
Zonta Club of Oahu proudly annually volunteers at the Susan G. Komen
“RACE FOR THE CURE®”, the “Great Aloha Run” and other events.
Sometimes those who could use some empowerment are right in front of us. This was true of our club when we responded to Zontian Marie Cassel, owner of Sweet Marie’s, dream of her own food truck. The pictured grill is a step toward that goal.
Child & Family Service “Festival of Hope”
The Zonta Club of Oahu volunteered at a Child & Family Service
“Festival of Hope.” Members spent the day bagging donated supplies
then helped at the drive-thru event.
Five thousand families have driven through eighteen Festivals across
Hawai’i, receiving not just supplies, but services in the areas of
domestic violence, healthcare, child care, employment, housing and
more. Family-friendly activities, following current COVID 19
guidelines, are also offered.
Zonta Supports Libraries
Donation of Children’s Books to Hawai’i State Library System.
Begun in 2001, LUNAFEST is “the very first traveling film festival featuring films by women, about women.” We are proud to be a part of the advancement of women in film by hosting screenings.
