Local Action

Zonta International is divided into districts and clubs.  The Zonta Club of Salt Lake is in Area 2, District 9 of Zonta International. Our members live along the Wasatch front and through our fundraising and service efforts we are able to help provide support for local organizations, as well as scholarships for the local Salt Lake Community College.

Global Impact

At the international level, Zonta International advocates on global issues primarily through the United Nations (UN) and Council of Europe. At the national level, Zonta districts, areas and clubs take action in support of, or in opposition to, legislation on issues affecting women and girls.

Local Advocacy

 Advocating locally means getting involved with the issues that align with our cause. We do this by staying aware and informed of what is going on in the Utah State legislature.
