For 130 years American Association of University Women (AAUW) members have been committed to its mission of advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.
The Lewis County Branch of AAUW was formed over 90 years ago and continues to be a vibrant organization where women gather to promote education for women at branch and interest group meetings. Each year two scholarships are given to women attending college, and we organize Expanding Your Horizons, a career day for middle school girls, each fall. These activities are funded by the proceeds of our annual Used Book Sale.
On May 13, 2017, we held our first Lunafest film festival at the Fox Theater. Attendees had the opportunity to buy raffle tickets for a number of lovely baskets, enjoy appetizers, and watch 9 short films by women producers. The event raised over $5000 which was given to Breast Cancer Research (15%) and Human Response Network (85%).
