Welcome to the Lake Oswego Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). Organized in 1976, the branch draws members from Lake Oswego, West Linn, and surrounding communities.
Established in 1881, AAUW is now a nationwide network of more than 170,000 members and donors, 1000 branches, and 100 college/university partners. It is nonpartisan, but not value neutral. AAUW fights to remove the barriers and biases that stand in the way of gender equity. It trains women to negotiate for pay and benefits and to pursue leadership roles. AAUW also advocates for federal, state and local laws and policies to ensure equity and end discrimination.
AAUW is open to all graduates who hold the Associate or higher degree from a college or university. We seek a diverse membership. There are no barriers to full participation on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or class. As an organization, we condemn racism.
Reproductive Health and Justice
We are pleased to have An Do, the new Interim Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon (PPAO) speak to us about the current policy landscape of reproductive health and justice, as well as the reproductive health challenges women of color encounter.
Before coming to PPAO, Do directed communications for No Cuts to Care, the campaign that defeated anti-abortion Ballot Measure 106. She has worked in direct services as a social worker and has extensive experience in business development, recruiting and operations..
Login information for this meeting will be sent to all members prior to the meeting. If you are not a member but would like to join the meeting, please contact us. The “doors” will open at 9:30 a.m. for those members who would like an opportunity to socialize before the presentation.
Due to our current concern about the corona virus, Lake Oswego AAUW will not be holding any public events before April 2021 at the earliest.
However, we are setting up virtual meetings, using ZOOM, to continue with our many book clubs and other Interest Groups. Please contact us if you are interested in participating.
