AAUW has launched a national project for members to reach out to Title IX Coordinators in districts and schools to provide information and offer support for gender-equitable public education. The Sacramento Branch Public Policy Committee wants to identify Branch members who would like to become part of a team to work on this project.
Participation would involve becoming familiar with the AAUW project materials, contacting local districts and possibly schools, and holding meetings with Title IX Coordinators. We can start with the Sacramento City Unified School District and expand to schools and/or nearby districts as members are available. Visits would not start until the new school year begins in August or September, but we would like to use the spring and summer months to plan and prepare.
This is an important national initiative designed to help local Title IX Coordinators be as effective as possible in ensuring gender equity for all students. If you are interested in participating, or have questions, contact Karen Humphrey by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 916-498-0527. Please respond by May 30 so we know if we have enough people to proceed.
