BECAUSE EQUITY IS STILL AN ISSUE!
People join AAUW to find fellowship with like-minded women (and men) who not only have fun in our special interest groups, but also support AAUW’s mission of advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education and research. These principles are expressed through our Public Policy in the areas of civil rights, education, economic security (including health care) and support for Title IX.
In the Tucson branch, some monthly member events feature speakers who address these issues and support our mission. Our branch website (tucson-az.aauw.net) and the state newsletter, the Arizona Sun, keep us up with current activities and information. Other benefits of membership, as listed on the AAUW website, include discounts; the quarterly magazine Outlook; opportunities to join in meetings and projects with members from all over the country; programs such as leadership development and community outreach—all available through our AAUW website, www.aauw.org.
