The Zonta Club of Tallahassee (ZCT) is a member of Zonta International, a global organization of  professionals working together to advance the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy. The club meets monthly September to May.  

A calendar of meetings and events is available at the bottom of this page.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Legislative Advocacy and Awareness Committee is proposing that the Zonta Club of Tallahassee approve two resolutions addressing issues that are expected to be addressed by the Florida legislature this year:  reimbursement of the cost of sexual assault forensic exams and civil liability for hotels and motels that are willfully blind to human trafficking.

We intend to share these resolutions with other Florida Clubs and advocacy organizations and provide them to our local legislative delegation and appropriate legislative committee members.

 

In accordance with Article XVI Section 1 of the Club bylaws, these resolutions were approved by the Board of the Zonta Club of Tallahassee on October 2, and have been publicized on the Club website.  These resolutions will be presented to the Club at the November meeting for approval by a majority of members attending the meeting.

 

If you have any questions about the resolutions, please contact Wendy Grey  wsgrey@outlook.com.

 

Thank you.

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
