Making Headlines and Making a Difference

The Zonta Club of Burbank Area recently captured the attention of local media outlets, and the Burbank Leader, for its pivotal role in advocating for a landmark city ordinance. This ordinance, passed by the Burbank City Council, marks a significant victory in the battle against human trafficking. It requires an expanded list of local businesses to post information aiding victims of forced labor and sexual exploitation, backed by stringent enforcement measures.

This legislative achievement showcases the Zonta Club's unwavering commitment to combating human trafficking. Members of the club, including Gloria Salas, the incoming Governor for Zonta International District 9, and Joy Collins-Brodt, demonstrated their dedication by participating in the city council meeting, which extended past midnight. Their efforts underline the global mission of Zonta Clubs to eradicate human trafficking and support victims.

Furthering their cause, the Zonta Club of Burbank Area also organized a Human Trafficking Forum at the Burbank Buena Vista Library on January 27. This event aimed to raise community awareness and educate the public about the horrors of human trafficking and the importance of the new ordinance.

The Zonta Club of Burbank Area's successful advocacy has not only led to critical legislative change but has also shone a spotlight on the club's significant impact in the local community and beyond. Their story in the news serves as an inspiration and a call to action for others to join in the fight against human trafficking.
