The Seaside division of AAUW had branched from Astoria’s AAUW division during WWll 1942-44. This was due to the gas restoration. Since then, our lovely Seaside branch has been nurturing women with career advancement, advocacy, and education. Along this journey we have grown it too much more.
The women in our chapter have been and continue to be committed to the advocacy of rights for women and have nurtured this to advocacy of rights for all genders. We have met these challenges and we have been successful even through the pandemic of covid-19. We have done so with activities including WINGS, Candidates Forums, foundation scholarships, and more. Recently getting involved with the robotics team and being actively involved with our community.
As a graduated WINGS recipient who had just begun her educational journey at the age of 35 with only an 8th grade education can testify that AAUW’s mission to advocacy of rights for all genders proves successful. As our current leader of the branch, I plan to face and embrace the challenges along the way, by nurturing our members and being a voice for those who need to be heard and supported along the way.
I believe in you, and I will believe in you, until you, believe in you!
We have a book group, walking group, lunch group, in past years we have had movie groups as well. These groups bring our members closer together. Maybe, you would like to start your own unique group in our chapter? We are always welcoming new members who are interested and eager to join us with our important mission! We encourage you to contact us with any questions about our mission, how to join, how to connect with a current member.
