2017 State Convention Presentation

“Ifs and Onlys and Little Girls’ Dreams”
The words “it’s a girl!” radiate excitement about a world of possibilities ahead — but as we see in this video, a little girl’s dreams are often limited by the words “if” and “only.” Share this video at branch programs open to the public, community events, or during other recruitment opportunities to show current and potential members why AAUW works to change the climate for women and girls. Download the video.

The Power of Your Gifts Video
For too long, restricted giving has left the AAUW programs that respond to new or current opportunities seriously underfunded. Unrestricted giving ensures that AAUW will remain nimble and able to adapt to the challenges women will face in the future. We don’t know what those challenges will be, but we do know that we’ll need a thriving AAUW to meet them. This simple video makes this concept come alive. Download and share it with your membership to ensure AAUW’s continued ability to change the climate for women and girls.
