What We Do . . .
Branch’s Legislative Achievements
Our branch had a critical role in establishing a county-wide library system including books-by-mail, getting the state-wide kindergarten bill passed, and getting the Inheritance Tax Bill passed granting equity to unemployed wives. We now work with coalition members on women’s issues in the state legislature to pass bills of common interest.
Annually, we support National’s AAUW scholarship programs . In conjunction with other branches we plan to send a student to the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) held in Washington, DC. in 2013.
Why Join Us . . .
Join like-minded members for fun and friendship. Get involved through interest groups, special events, community activities, program meetings, AAUW of Oregon conventions, and National AAUW conventions.
These activities keep our members interested and active.

Our strength is in our numbers, and through the volume of our collective voice, we will continue to break through barriers for women and girls.
