Seattle Branch Annual Meeting

Free registration. To register, click here.

We are giving three of our new members the floor and also voting in new officers! Don’t miss it!

What does a Shoreline Community College program coordinator, a State Senate communications specialist, and a power systems engineer have in common?
All three are new members of our Seattle branch!

Reitha Weeks, Hannah Howell, and Haley Coutts will be guest speakers for our May Branch meeting, where they’ll introduce themselves and tell all of us why they’ve chosen AAUW at this point in their journey.
New members are especially encouraged to attend this Zoom event so they can meet and formally introduce themselves to other branch members. Also on the
agenda will be the election of new officers and a brief review and vote on our branch bylaws.

We hope all members will attend this May meeting, our last meeting of the 2020-2021 program year.
It’ll be a great opportunity to say hello, learn a little more about each other, and contribute to the growth of our Seattle branch.

AAUW Stands Against Racism

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.

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.

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.
