Zonta Says No! to violence against women...

… on 25th November we turn Marble Arch orange marking the start of 16 days of activism against gender based violence

    

We participate in the "Orange the World: Generation Equality Stands against Rape!" campaign by lighting a landmark orange - Marble Arch. 

 
Date: 25th of November
Time: 16:30 - 20.00
 
Location: Marble Arch (we will initially gather on the Park Lane side)
Dress code: Wear orange. We will have some orange fleecy scarves for sale (£5) for early comers - but anything orange is good.
 
We will be handingg out roses to people passing by with an explanation of why the monument is orange. 
 
We also want to take lots of photos of lots of people in orange. Please forward this invitation to friends, colleagues and others who may be interested in being part of this historic moment. 

Together we can make a stand!

Modern Slavery Update

It is thought that mainly due to increased awareness 2,808 potential victims of modern slavery were referred to the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) between 1st July and 30th September 2019. This is a 21% increase from the previous quarter and a 61% increase from the same quarter in 2018.  

Most potential victims were from the UK, Albania and Vietnam, and the most common forms of exploitation was labour exploitation followed by sexual exploitation.
