This is our 2nd year hosting LUNAFEST® & we are excited to have you join us in our annual movie film fundraiser!
This year, Zonta Club of Birmingham will donate 100% of the profits from this fundraiser to *ALABAMA ARISE to be earmarked to help expand Medicaid in Alabama, where the lack of healthcare in Alabama disproportionately affects women. For more information on Medicaid Expansion, please visit Alabama Arise (Medicaid).
Zonta Club of Birmingham works every day to “Build a Better World for Women & Girls”! Zonta envisions a world in which women’s rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential. In such a world women have access to all resources and are represented in decision-making positions on an equal basis with men. In such a world, no woman lives in fear of violence.
In the past 12 months, our Club has addressed human trafficking and domestic violence, and championed health issues affecting women. We made significant donations to the YWCA’s Santa’s Workshop; bought period products for Montevallo High School (AL) Z-Club to restock girls’ restrooms; and supported the YWCA Domestic Violence Shelter residents by providing welcome boxes with personal essentials. We also support Youth Towers (critical transitional housing for young adults) and the UAB Food Pantry. Click here to read more about the Zonta Club of Birmingham.
Finally, we will never stop trying to make a difference in our community. Please partner with us by asking a friend to purchase a movie screening ticket and enjoy the show with you! You can also host a watch party and make it a fun “Women’s Advocate Night Out”!
*Alabama Arise is a statewide, member-led organization advancing public policies to improve the lives of Alabamians who are marginalized by poverty. Their membership includes faith-based, community, nonprofit and civic groups, grassroots leaders, and individuals from across Alabama. Expanding Medicaid would reduce racial health disparities and remove financial barriers to health care for more than 340,000 Alabamians. It would support thousands of new jobs across the state. And most importantly, it would save hundreds of lives every year.
