Thank you to the downtown Concord merchants!

The Zonta Club of Concord would like to thank all the
downtown Concord businesses that proudly placed the “Zonta
Says NO to Violence Against Women” stickers in their
windows during the 16 Days of Activism, Nov. 25 to Dec. 10.
Intimate partner violence has to stop. It hurts our families, our
communities, our economy. Part of our work is to raise
awareness around these issues. The victims of these crimes
need to be supported, not blamed or shamed. Perpetrators
need to be held accountable for their actions. We need to
prevent this violence from happening in the first place. We
all do better when people are safe in their homes and
communities. Primary prevention starts with individuals and
communities being empowered to speak up and against
violence. To this end, we are appreciative of all the downtown
Concord businesses that stand with us.
Lynn Stanley, President Elect
