R-90 and the Campaign for
Safe & Healthy Youth
with Catherine West

A vote to approve Referendum-90 will support
Senate Bill 5395 and require public school districts to
teach age-appropriate sexual health education to K-12 students. Come join us as Catherine West explains
R-90 and what a YES vote would mean for the youth in Washington.

As a staff attorney at Legal Voice, Catherine fights for
gender equality on behalf of girls, women, and LGBTQ+ people. Like WA State AAUW and our Seattle branch, Legal Voice is also a part of the growing coalitions supporting the Campaign for Safe & Healthy Youth.

Join the meeting to learn how YOU can help support
the campaign and our youth.

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.
