Grants Pass Branch ~ January 2017

Branch Meeting – Zonta STEPS forward for Women, Families, and the Community

Saturday, January 21, 10 a.m. at the Fruitdale Grange                                                     Presenter – Leslee O’Brien, Grants Pass Zonta STEP Representative

Come learn more about Zonta’s STEP (Safe Transitions and Empowerment Program) and how this valuable program is creating better lives for women and their families in our community. Zonta is a sister organization that shares our AAUW goals to advance equity and empowerment for women and girls. In late 2012, the Grants Pass Zonta Club created the Zonta STEP (Safe Transitions and Empowerment Program) to help at-risk women and their families secure safe housing by providing financial resources, household items, and ongoing mentorship. A motto of the Grants Pass Zonta Club is to “Be Kind – Change Lives.”

Come to the January 21 meeting to hear what they are doing to make that happen!
