The Jacksonville Branch of AAUW was organized in February 1926. Presently we have 36 members who enthusiastically support the Mission of AAUW: to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. For more information, see the national AAUW webpage.
Our signature projects include
- Sponsorship of Expanding Your Horizons, a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics workshop for middle school girls
- Planning and sponsorship of events to recognize Equal Pay Day, usually in April, and to raise awareness of pay equity issues. In 2017 the Equal Pay Day Lunch and Learn event, held at the Garden Club of Jacksonville, brought about 90 women together. Co-sponsors included Delta Sigma Theta, Jacksonville Area NOW,
The Women’s Center of Jacksonville, The Women’s Center at UNF, The Powell-Williams Law firm, PA, and Meltonia May Jenkins of Jenkins Quality barbecue.
We meet monthly on the third Saturday of the month in a luncheon format.
