Zonta Says No Area 3 Empty Shoes Planning Committee

Five Area 3 clubs held a Zonta Says No, Empty Shoes Art event in Denver on November 25, 2013. Two hundred tickets were sold with a profit of over $10,000.   Proceeds will go to club and international service projects to help prevent violence against women.


“Zonta” is derived from a Lakhota word (Teton Dakota), a language of the Native-American Sioux peoples, meaning honest and trustworthy. It was adopted in 1919 to symbolize the combined qualities of honesty and trust, inspiration and ability to work together for service and world understanding.

Zonta Says No!

“We can’t and mustn’t ignore the fact: violence against women and girls is still pervasive in all kinds of countries and societies….Zonta International has been committed to its prevention and eradication for many years. In 2013, as the UN’s Commission on the Status of Women focuses on fighting violence against women,…a worldwide campaign saying no to violence against women. Do not look away. Join us!” – ZI President Lynn McKenzie


The Zonta Says No campaign was highlighted during Saturday night’s banquet on October 5th with all attendees wearing their best orange attire and holding banners and Zonta Says No pumpkins.
Clubs in District 12 will take part in many activities on November 25th, which is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and kicks off the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence.
