AAUW Supports Planned Parenthood

Posted At : August 8, 2015 8:54 AM

By now you are aware of the attacks against Planned Parenthood. So what is AAUW’s response? As evidenced in our member-adopted Public Policy Program, AAUW is a longtime supporter of reproductive rights. We know Planned Parenthood values the health and safety of its patients above all else, and has high-quality standards for their lifesaving tissue donation programs.
 
To show our support, AAUW joined 92 organizations in signing a letter to Congress informing them that we stand with Planned Parenthood and the women they serve every day. AAUW has also joined 96 organizations on a coalition letter opposing congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, and sent our own letter to the Hill urging a “no” vote. We will be scoring this vote in our AAUW Action Fund Congressional Voting Record.

A Visit to Tech Trek Camp

Posted At : July 9, 2015 7:22 AM

 During a workshop on veterinary medicine, Trinka March DVM talks with one table of campers while another table practices suturing. As the campers rotated through the tables, they also read about parasites and learned how to prep for surgery.

This workshop is just one of the afternoon activities at Tech Trek Camp Hopper this week.

The camp, held at Stanford University, is led by Co-Directors Maureen Buchner and Melinda Moir.

Congratulations to the Humboldt branch for their outstanding mission-based program for May.  Humboldt's program was "Encouraging Women to Succeed in Community Colleges".  Their speaker was Dr. Angelina Hill from College of the Redwoods.  Dr. Hill has an extensive background in institutional research, planning and accreditation.  She has a wealth of knowledge about College of the Redwoods.  More women than ever before (upwards of 4 million) are relying on community colleges for higher education and workforce preparation.  AAUW recently released a report that includes best practices and policies to help them succeed.
