Our 20-21 theme: Standing Strong and Committed to Community…as we weather this time of uncertainty we will work together to not only keep our branch community strong but also work, where and when possible, to strengthen the broader community as we grapple with social injustice and inequality.

Discussion Regarding Racism
Please join us if you…
- WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS NEW FOR THE COMING YEAR?
- WHAT HAS STAYED THE SAME?
- WHAT HAS CHANGED?
AND, JOIN IN A DIALOGUE ABOUT OUR FUTURE. We are at a moment in history when significant changes can be made to further social justice and diminish social inequities. How can we as a branch respond to this moment? How can we make a difference?
To quote from a statement from AAUW California: “To those who feel we have gone beyond our mission statement to promote equity for women and girls, we remind you of the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ … and the words of Malala Yousafzai: ‘I raise up my voice –not so that I can shout, but so those without a voice can be heard.’”
Let us celebrate what we already do and share ideas on how we can make a difference for the future.
