DEARBORN — The American Association of University Women – Dearborn Branch will provide information about the organization and special offers at the Community Fund Tent during the Dearborn Homecoming festival Aug. 1 through 3.
The organization has impacted thousands of women throughout its 130-year history by supporting equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research. Branches across the United States provide funding, support and resources for women not only in their own communities, but across the world.
The priorities for 2014-15 include pay equity and human trafficking. Through a variety of efforts including education, policy impact and legal advocacy these issues will be addressed by local branches, as well as at the national level.
Continued effort also will focus on other issues including education, civil rights and immigration.
AAUW-Dearborn offers several ways to become involved in community outreach and personal enrichment. Volunteers are needed year round for its biggest fundraiser, the annual book sale.
There are many study and interest groups offered that increase understanding and provide learning with others with similar interests. During the organizations meetings, speakers often share information on any number of topics.
The public is invited to learn about AAUW-Dearborn during Homecoming. Members will share information about ways the organization fosters change through awareness, its many opportunities for social networking, and other interesting activities available through membership participation.
People who stop by will receive a coupon for $5 off of any $25 purchase at the book sale in September. A one-year membership also will be offered at a discount from $78 per year to $45 during Homecoming.
