Longmont & Boulder County

Become involved and take action … on the Local level!

Our Advocacy Statement

The Longmont Branch works locally to advance the AAUW member-endorsed Public Policy priorities, addressing policies that break through educational and economic barriers.  We collaborate with other organizations in the community, including the League of Women Voters, Delta Kappa Gamma, the Women’s Collaborative of Boulder County, and Front Range Community College on specific areas of work such as Get Out the Vote, Title IX, and pay equity.
