It’s time for AAUW to live up to our mission statement as an organization.

As our country looks at where it has fallen short of its promise in racial justice, it’s time for AAUW members to apply that same honest examination of where our organization has fallen short of its mission to promote gender equity for ALL.

Please watch this video of AAUW CEO Kimberly Churches’ webinar from August 2020 on “Policy vs. Practice: 1920-Present” Beginning at the 30-minute mark, she lays out the reasons it is imperative for AAUW members to approve a bylaws amendment to remove the degree requirement for membership.

This website was created and is maintained by a group of AAUW who whole-heartedly agree with this proposal. In addition to Kimberly Churches’ clear explanation in this video, this website provides more background and history on this topic.

We urge all AAUW members to listen carefully, read thoroughly, and to vote for this bylaws amendment change in Spring 2021!
