Greetings AAUW NJ Members,
I'm not sure if it's because of all the restrictions on our activities this year, or because of them, but for me it feels like this year is just flying by! Many of our branches have been successful in adapting programs and interest groups to virtual or socially distanced formats. We are a creative group, and always interested in learning new things.
Congratulations to the Atlantic County Branch "For A More Just Society" interest group for the very well researched and polished program that they shared with us statewide last month: Where Do We Go From Here?: The Invention of Race, Redlining, and Mass Incarceration." We hope other branches are motivated to take up the discussion of "where we go from here" in addressing racism as a particular equity concern. Watch the Atlantic County Branch website for a link to the recording of this program.
Many thanks to our Communications VP, Mariel Kolker, for creating this new compact newsletter format. Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have suggestions for future newsletters.
Karen Brown, President
