We are planning an exciting and productive AAUW-Wisconsin Legislative Day at the State Capitol in Madison on Thursday, October 15. This event will start at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 4402 East Washington Ave., with registration at 8:30 am and then feature speakers on issues and advocacy training and lunch in the morning before heading to the State Capitol to meet with our legislators from 1 pm to 3 pm.
For more information, please see the flyer and registration form. Register by Oct. 10.
The cost is $20.00 for AAUW members and $25.00 for advocacy partners.
Plan to join us and share info on this special event with your branch members and local advocacy partners.
We are still laboring to make Wisconsin a better place for all women and girls.
For a more detailed look at recent Public Policy news, please see this Public Policy report, an expanded version of the report included in your Badger Briefs.

Today, women wield great power in U.S. and Wisconsin politics. Women vote more often than men. Therefore, women are the ones who often decide who gets to become an elected official and who does not.
But to exercise our political power, women must first register to vote and then actually go to the polls and vote for candidates that would best represent their economic and social interests.
We have an opportunity with the upcoming November 4 election to reach out this fall to young and not-so-young women who might be persuaded to register to vote and become new voters in your districts.
