LAF Luncheon 2013 Was an Inspiring Success!

Posted At : March 25, 2013 4:11 PM

Burlingame's Embassy Suites buzzed on Saturday, March 16 with the sound of AAUW women supporting one of our favorite causes.  

Jennifer Reisch, Legal Director for Equal Rights Advocates spoke to the group about her work as attorney for Betty Dukes in her suit against Wal-Mart.  Her words were inspiring as they demonstrated how LAF funds are used to support the case.

During luncheon conversation with AAUW CA President, Alicia Hetman, Jennifer was also inspired -- to complete the application form and become a member of AAUW!

With a matching funds challenge from Gloria Weston, longtime supporter and activist for LAF and for whom the Gloria Weston Outreach Fund is named, luncheon attendees were inspired to raise $3600 on the spot.

AAUW Has Influence!

Posted At : June 28, 2012 11:15 AM

Sue Miller, our Public Policy Director, reports the following:

In response to a complaint filed by the Chico Branch AAUW California, the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) has concluded that the Chico Unified School District (CUSD) fails to comply with Title IX regulations for the sport programs at the two high schools.

The OCR determined that the high school sports program did not meet any of the three prongs used to assess whether a school is providing nondiscriminatory sport opportunities for both sexes. The District is not effectively accommodating the interests and abilities of female students and there is a pattern of disparities favoring boys with regard to locker rooms, practice and competitive facilities, the time of day for competitive events, and publicity.

Title IX Litigants in Mansourian v. UC Davis to Speak at Funds Luncheon November 5

Posted At : August 4, 2011 9:31 PM

The female athletes supported by AAUW in their Title IX suit against UC Davis will be the featured speakers at an AAUW Funds luncheon to be held on November 5 at the Burlingame Embassy Suites Hotel.

Reservations for the luncheon can be made in the AAUW Funds section of this website, under 2011 Funds Luncheons HERE.

Attorney Noreen Farrell reported the Court found in favor for the Title IX claim against the University, but let the individual UC officials off the hook for the constitutional claim.  The Court was not supportive of the women wrestlers, but could not avoid the clear facts of the case showing a program-wide Title IX violation when they were students.  

AAUW's support was very important in this case.
