Why Public Policy in AAUW?
If we women don’t advocate for issues that directly affect our lives then who will? Who else can speak from first-hand experience about the struggles and issues that face us? Who else can do it better? Revisit our mission and diversity statement and our purpose. You can find these in front of any yearbook. You can get involved on any level from joining Two-Minute Activist at aauw.org, registering new voters, writing letters to the editor (for which there are samples), or even lobbying your representatives (with help). There is strength in numbers. Let us take up our pens, raise our voices, tweet and post. If not now, when? Randi L. Blauth, Co-Chair, Public Policy
