    Observing the 18th annual Silent Witness ceremony, wooden silhouettes represent the women and men who have died due to domestic violence in 2014. The 40 silhouettes represent 29 known female victims, 10 known male victims and one for those victims of whom we are not aware. This program is sponsored by the SC Attorney General’s Office.

    Comments Off on Savannah’s Initiative to Fight Sex Trafficking

    The Zonta Club of Savannah and its President, JoAnne Garcia-Melendez, were thanked publicly for their help throughout this Initiative. President Garcia-Melendez remained available 24/7 for 5 months as a resource for the offices of the Georgia Attorney General and the Mayor of Savannah. She and the Zonta members managed picking up and serving meals to law enforcement daily, for each of the 12 Police training classes offered during the week of September 14th. They also handled registration and check-in for the October 26th event, as well as provided refreshments. The Zonta Club of Savannah, in 2008, was the first organization in Savannah to publicly address the issue of Human Trafficking.
