Zorza has dedicated her life to ending violence against women and
children. To recognize her tireless efforts on behalf of the victimized and often powerless among us, we dedicate this wall of tribute.
virtual wall symbolizes the wall of support Joan built with her life’s
work -- the wall of protection she created not only for her clients, but
also for the countless victims whose lives were made better by Joan’s
profound and far-reaching impact.
This wall will be built, brick by brick, with donations from those
of us inspired by Joan’s life and work. With each brick added to the
wall, we honor her dedicated service. More important, each brick
represents another step toward continuing her life’s work. When you buy
a brick, the money is donated to a scholarship fund to provide training
for professionals who are following in Joan’s footsteps. Scholarships will be awarded to professionals who are similarly working
to end violence against women and children, in order to attend the 2013 International Conference on Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, and Stalking hosted by End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI).
