Welcome to the Zonta Club of Tallahassee website!
We are part of Zonta International, a worldwide network of professionals with a shared interest in advancing the status of women through service and advocacy. Since Zonta’s founding in Buffalo, New York in 1919, we have grown to encompass over 31,000 members in 66 countries around the globe. The main objectives of Zonta International are to:
- improve the legal, political, economic, educational, health and professional status of women at the global and local level through service and advocacy;
- work for the advancement of understanding, goodwill and peace through a fellowship of executives in business and the professions;
- promote justice and universal respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms; and
- be united internationally to foster high ethical standards, to implement service programs and to provide mutual support and fellowship for members who serve their communities, their nations and the world.
Our local club was chartered in May 1980 and since then we have supported many community projects, such as the PACE Center for Girls and the Refuge House; advocated for national legislation to protect women and girls from violence and exploitation; and supported Zonta International initiatives to improve the lives of women and girls worldwide. In the pages of this website, you will find more information about our current projects and activities.
