We honor the remarkable strength of women and children in Ukraine who are forced flee their homes and to those who fight for their lives and land. We recognize the heavy burden placed on women and children in war. #StandingWithUkraine #standwithukraine #IStandWithUkraine

 

A message from Sharon Langenbeck,  President of Zonta International: 

 

"Our thoughts are with our Zonta members in Ukraine at this difficult and frightening time. We know that in times of conflict and war women primarily bear the burden of keeping their families together, ensuring the safety and health of their children and addressing the long-term emotional and physical damage inflicted by war.

 

One of Zonta International’s objects is to work for the advancement of understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of members. We will continue to build and support a global community of individuals who share a common commitment to equality and peace for all.

 

We have been in touch with our Zonta clubs in Ukraine within the last week and reached out again today to see how they are doing and to express our support."

85 Years Serving Women
Zonta Club of Berkeley/North Bay and Beyond

In 1936 a group of professional women in the Berkeley and surrounding area established a local chapter of Zonta International, forming the new Zonta Club of Berkeley. Over the years the club expanded to serve a larger geographical area expanding in the 1970's to include the North Bay. Today we serve an even larger region and are the Zonta Club of Berkeley/North Bay and Beyond! We include our service projects and advocacy to advancing the status of women to East Bay and even further. We have members from San Francisco to Bakersfield who want to build bridges to empower women.

Let's work to end discrimination in it's many forms.

Let's work to build fundamental rights worldwide.

 

Around the world and here in the San Francisco Bay Area live people who want to make his/her/their own choices of who to be with, who to love and who to marry.

 

We support that the choice to make these decisions is done without bias or discrimination from others. 

 

We encourage all people to have the courage to be true to a best self.

 

When a person- however they feel comfortable and identify- is true to a best self, that person will be empowered.

 

That empowerment can then pay-it-forward to help improve the lives and status of others. The empowerment starting at home grows and moves out reaching women and girls around the globe.

 

At Zonta Berkeley/North Bay and Beyond

We take pride

that we believe in gender equality.
