Greetings AAUW NJ Members,
This November I have something new to be thankful for, that I never would have imagined a year ago – videoconferencing. I am so proud of the connections that we’ve made across the state because of our members willingness to learn to use this new tool. Of course we look forward to gathering in-person again, there really is nothing like it, but even when that’s possible, I’m sure we will appreciate having the tools for meeting virtually.
We expect financial challenges ahead because most of our past fundraising activities relied on large in-person events, but we have to remember that the need for support hasn’t gone away. AAUW’s equity advocacy is more important than ever in unstable times to ensure that things stabilize on the side of justice and equality. I am sure we will find creative ways to finance our continuing AAUW mission work – be sure to use our new state-wide connectivity to collaborate with branches throughout the state.
