Welcome

AAUW of Oregon

We express our profound shock and disappointment about the events that took place on January 6, 2021, in Washington, DC and elsewhere. We also affirm our commitment to our democratic principles. Our country’s democracy is undeniably imperfect, but it represents a worthy ideal. Violence in the name of a political point of view should not be tolerated.

We condemn racism, which is so deeply rooted in our country and demonstrated in many aspects of our lives. There can be no justice or equality when any individuals or communities are treated with indignity or denied equitable access to health care, quality education, desirable housing, opportunities for job advancement and economic security.  

As advocates for equality, it behooves us as AAUW of Oregon members to recognize and speak up against racism.

We therefore commit to fighting for justice, long-term and lasting change, and we stand in solidarity against racism. We pledge to take action in advancing policies and systemic changes that respond directly to racial biases. 

We also acknowledge that as an organization we have our own work to do.

About the Member Center

There are many pages on this Web site that are available for browsing and we hope that our visitors find them to be both enjoyable and informative (click navigation buttons above).

In addition, there is a second part to the site that is non-public. It is called the Member Center and that is where members of AAUW will find the forms, lists, and documents that are the basic tools for the smooth running of our organization. Back issues of the state newsletter are available also.

To log-in to the AAUW Oregon Member Center, follow the procedure outlined in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section of this website.
