Zonta Club Raises Awareness for Domestic Violence with Purple Ribbon Campaign

Posted by wlpo on October 11, 2016

You may have noticed purple ribbons decorating city halls in the Illinois Valley, but you may not have known they’re to promote domestic violence awareness.

The ribbons are the handiwork of the Zonta Club, an organization dedicated to service and advocacy for women worldwide. The LaSalle-Peru chapter of the club uses the ribbons as just one of many ways to achieve that goal.

Linda Hiltabrand is the President of that chapter. She says they’re meant to begin a dialogue that can hopefully end domestic violence.

Hiltabrand says if you’d like to get involved with the group you’ll have a chance to do that later this month. A luminary walk in Ottawa on October 25th is open to anyone who would like to participate. You can learn more at
