AAUW Advocacy Statement

AAUW does not endorse any candidate for public office, nor any political party.  Our members are, however, active in voter registration drives, voter education efforts, panels, committees, seminars, letter-writing campaigns, and virtually every other means by which citizens can participate in the democratic process.

Contact our Public Policy Chair to discuss ways to get more involved.
