BLACK LIVES MATTER
AAUW joins the country in mourning the losses of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless other people of color who have been unjustly killed across our nation. Our country needs healing. But healing will only come with justice. As an organization we condemn racism.
Systemic racism is firmly rooted in the U.S. and today’s injustices mirror our shameful history — from police brutality to the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on communities of color. There can be no justice or equality when Black and Brown communities are seen as less deserving of basic human and civil rights.
On behalf of our 170,000 members and supporters, we commit to fighting for justice, long-term and lasting change, and we stand in solidarity against racism. We also acknowledge that as an organization we have our own work to do.
And, as a member of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, we will work to advance the policies and systemic changes identified in the New Era of Public Safety: A Guide to Fair, Safe, and Effective Community Policing and Vision for Justice platform.

A new date for our postponed tea
The Women of Whatcom County Tea and Fashion show has now been rescheduled to a still later date. This time, we are hoping for Saturday, March 20, 2021.
We realized that a date in September was too unpredictable for a group as large as ours during the COVID pandemic. Please don’t worry, all purchased tickets will be honored.
The first day of Spring, Afternoon Tea with scones and tea sandwiches, Fashion Show, Bellingham Country Club — all the ingredients for a marvelous day! It’ll be great to offer hugs and handshakes again. See you there!
Questions may be directed to our email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your understanding in this difficult time.
