In case you missed the nonprofit’s 16 Days of Activism campaign, the organization will continue to share more information about its advocacy projects throughout the year.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, interacting with the public was quite different compared to past years. During Zonta’s campaign, the organization shared posts on Facebook and Instagram every day from 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. to promote awareness about the 16 days of activism. Topics included: Orange Day, Bullying, Zonta Says No, Gender Equality, #HeForShe, Ending Child Marriage, Domestic Violence, Female Genital Mutilation, Human Trafficking, Human Slavery, the Red Dress Project, and Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women.
Zonta’s website blog page also shared valuable information which mirrored the club’s social media campaign.
