To support the goals of AAUW, we have several Projects each year: Expanding Your Horizons —  career day for middle school girls; Lunafest — a film festival for women; and a Used Book Sale to raise money for our Scholarships.  We give scholarships to support women attending college and to support STEM education at the middle and high school levels.
