AAUW: It’s Your Vote, You Will Be Heard!
Go to the branch’s Public Policy page to find links and other information —everything you need to confidently cast your vote for each office and issue on your March 20, 2018 Illinois Primary ballot.
Join us at our next Branch meeting on April 4, 2018
What now? How do we …? What can I do?
How Can I Make My Voice Heard?
Our April program looks back at some of the policy changes we have explored this year – immigration, human rights, pay equity, and women in leadership – and suggests ways you can take action.
Many of you have asked how you can get involved, take action, or make your voice heard. A panel of action leaders from Indivisible, AAUW, League of Women Voters, and UCARE will brief us on opportunities and ways that each of us will find helpful on how to get more involved and make sure women’s voices are heard and represented. We look forward to seeing you there.
April 4 at 7.00 PM

Why do we collect and sell used books?
The Wheaton-Glen Ellyn Branch’s main fundraiser is the annual AAUW Used Book Sale. Each year, we sell more than 30,000 volumes to members of the community and visitors from surrounding states. Proceeds fund fellowships and grants nationally and COD scholarships locally. AAUW Wheaton-Glen Ellyn Branch, NFP is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. AAUW stands for American Association of University Women, a national organization founded in 1881.
