"I am honored to be at your District Conference in Pittsfield, MA as your International Representative and Board Liaison. It is a pleasure to work closely with Governor Joanne and to learn more about District 1. The strength of the organization is built on relationships and collaborations. The conference provides an opportunity to share your club’s activities, successes and future plans --- let your voice be heard. Our impact is greater when we work collectively."
Attendees will have an opportunity to meet and spend time with the woman in line to be our next International President! She will lead Zonta International during its Centennial anniversary ~ and we will be among the first to hear what that will look like and how we can participate.
Child Marriage in Massachusetts – Yes, It Happens Here
State Representative Kay Khan, RN, MS
State Representative Kay Khan has represented the City of Newton in the Massachusetts House of Representatives since 1995. She was originally appointed by Speaker Robert DeLeo in 2009 to serve as the House Chair of the Joint Committee on Children, Families, and Persons with Disabilities, and has served in this capacity ever since. It is Rep. Kahn’s hope that you will be inspired by her talk and that you will contact your State Legislators to advocate to end the marriage of minors, and to educate your community about this issue and the legislation.
