6th Annual Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women Silent Walk

Please join us in our 6th Annual Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women Silent Walk in downtown Milwaukee next Monday, October 4, 11:55 AM to 1 PM, Milwaukee City Hall.

Intimate partner violence in Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin has dramatically increased in the past two years and continues to rise at appalling levels. Through this event, we hope to draw the attention of people in the greater Milwaukee area to the issue of domestic violence and inspire community action to change this trend.

The Zonta Says NO Walk will be a silent walk around the Milwaukee downtown area, beginning and ending at Milwaukee City Hall, for the purpose of remembering those in Wisconsin who died in 2020 domestic violence-related homicides. The one-mile walk will begin promptly at 11:55 am and is anticipated to take about 30 minutes.

Following the walk, several community leaders will briefly comment on the issue of domestic violence, after which we will honor those who fell victim in 2020. Shawn Mohammed, Assoc Dir of The Asha Project will speak on behalf of End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin, the organization that publishes the annual Homicide Report. Other confirmed speakers include Carmen Pitre, President and CEO, Sojourner; DA John Chisholm or his representative; Sgt Theresa Janick, Domestic Violence High Risk Team of the Sensitive Crimes Division, MPD, and Karin Tyler, Family Injury and Violence Prevention Mgr, City Office of Violence Prevention. The event will conclude at 1:00 pm.

Bring friends, family, colleagues. If you are representing an organization, feel free to wear logo clothing to demonstrate your support. In past years, we have received strong media support. Make sure to arrive by 11:45.
