Supporting AAUW’s Mission In Many Ways

AAUW Florida encourages our members to become involved in every level of the political process. We actively support legislation representative of AAUW’s Public Policy Priorities. We represent our National priorities to our members, the public, and the media. We organize members and supporters to take action on our priorities, and we lead voter education and get-out-vote (GOTV) campaigns for Florida.

Our advocacy activities include priority public policy initiatives by our Public Policy Committee, led by Kay Smith, Director for Public Policy; Action Alerts about our legislative agenda sent to members and supporters; branch activities to highlight special events, such as Equal Pay Day; and activities related to local and statewide elections.
