Branch Highlights, 2019 – 2020
Unfortunately, the monthly Vienna Area Branch programs open to the public were cancelled for April and May. Below is a sample of other programs and activities that branch members enjoyed this year. Some were open to the public; all focused on supporting AAUW’s mission and strategic plan.
Highlights include the following.
Among the monthly branch programs were the following:
Civil Rights in Alexandria, with Audrey Davis, Director of the Alexandria Black History Museum and historical consultant for the PBS drama, Mercy Street.
Women Entrepreneurs: Creating a Sense of Community, with Jen Morrow (see photo above).
Last fall we participated in the AAUW Get Out The Vote effort by registering voters in Vienna. Branch members attended AAUW of Virginia State Lobby Day in Richmond in January, a session that coincided with the historic ERA vote. In addition, four of our members are part of the AAUW Capitol Hill Lobby Corps, which lobbies regularly when Congress is in session.
Our members enjoyed social times such as our holiday luncheon, which also benefits the Fairfax County Women’s Shelter. We have three book discussion groups as well as a Great Decisions group and a monthly movie meetup group.
