WELCOME TO AAUW WHATCOM (PREVIOUSLY BELLINGHAM)!

WELCOME TO AAUW!  We are an organization that started back in 1918, with a passion to make Women’s Equity a Reality!

We promote events and scholarships for women and girls, and hope you’ll join us! We offer free programs to help women negotiate fair pay! Please spread the word!

Even non-members can participate in current women’s issues by weighing in with our 2 minute activist program. Go to our national website AAUW.org.

Our meetings are via zoom for the time being, on the 2nd Saturday of the month, from 10- noon.  Our programs are always interesting, and we also have fun breakouts to spend some social time!

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.
