King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert received the Zonta Club of East King County’s 2013 International Rose Day Award March 8. She was honored for her work on behalf of survivors of domestic violence.

On International Women’s Day each year, Zonta Clubs recognize those who made significant contributions in efforts to advance the status of women.  This year’s focus is on preventing domestic violence and supporting survivors.

“I’m honored to receive this award,” said Lambert, who represents Northeast King County and Sammamish. “My work to protect victims of domestic violence and human trafficking is motivated by a deeply held belief that all women deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.”

The Zonta Club of East King County is a chapter of Zonta International, a service organization of executives working together to advance the status of women worldwide.
