AAUW Mission Statement

To advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy.

What We Do

Since the 1930s, the Medford, Oregon branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) has served our community, advancing advocacy, education and equity for women. Our Branch, together with other community organizations, has helped to establish and further some of the most esteemed institutions and cultural events in Jackson County. We offer fellowship, networking, leadership training and lifelong friends. Our members enjoy opportunities to meet and have fun with others of like interests from antiques to books to international cuisine and much more through our interest groups. From working to improve the lives of thousands to helping one homeless teen, this is what we do.

Nationally Networked

Nationally, AAUW has been empowering women as individuals and as a community since 1881. For more than 140 years, it has worked as a national grassroots organization to improve the lives of millions of women and their families. Our nonpartisan, nonprofit organization has more than 170,000 members and supporters across the United States, as well as 1,000 local branches and 800 college and university partners.

Next AAUW Medford Branch General Meeting Program

Social gathering, Program at 10:00 A.M., Rogue Credit Union 1330 Poplar Drive, Medford (the corner of McAndrews and Poplar.)  This is a “welcome back” meeting where all the Interest Groups will be represented and sign-up sheets available.  Plus, tickets for the fundraiser performance on September 27 of Cabaret at the Camelot Theater in Phoenix will be available for purchase.

Our very own Judith Salter will talk about her remarkable life.  Although Judith loved being a librarian, they do not get paid much so, she had to work two jobs.  The realization that she could no longer work two jobs led to her first degree in law and to the prisons that led to many wonderful stories.
