Zonta Club of Kankakee hosts 17th annual Empowerment Walk
5 October was a beautiful morning for the Zonta Club of Kankakee's annual Empowerment Walk in support of Harbor House and survivors of domestic violence.
The messages of survivor strength were so powerful, club members wanted to share them with Zontians around the world.
They also want to recognize Harbor House Executive Director Jenny Schoenwetter, Legal Advocate Joelle, and the other "guardian angel" staff of Harbor House for the important and incredible work they do with survivors every day. Zonta club members have endless respect and gratitude for them.
Likewise, thank yous were also given to the staff of KC-CASA, the Center Against Sexual Assault, for their support of the event and their work with survivors. Members of the Zonta Club of Kankakee said they appreciate all who came out and walked in support of Harbor House and survivors of domestic violence.
Members encourage all to remember that ending the cycle of violence begins with you.
