Stories from the Student Organization Community
“As an AAUW student organization leader, I advocate for women, feminism, and social justice on campus and in my local community.”
— Theresa Johnson, Lock Haven University
“I tried to join other feminist organizations on campus, but I couldn’t find the sense of community I was looking for in them. I decided to start an AAUW student organization myself to create a space for women from different backgrounds and ideologies to come together.”
— Ivelisse Porroa-Garcia, University of California, Los Angeles
“I founded our AAUW student organization after attending NCCWSL. It has changed my whole college experience by giving me a voice.”
