Public Policy Update by Ashley Anglesey

Our New Public Policy Director Ashley Anglesey

Hello AAUW Sacramento Branch Members!

My name is Ashley Anglesey, and I am the new Director of Public Policy. I am 28 years old and just graduated Magna Cum Laude from California State University, Sacramento, with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. During my undergrad, I held many leadership positions on campus (including serving as an officer in AAUW’s Chapter) and was a research assistant in two psychology labs. I also held an internship at the California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls, where I served as a public policy researcher. I’m now studying for the LSAT and will be applying to law schools for fall 2018 admission, where I hope to specialize in Employment & Labor Law.

I’m excited to start working in this branch and bring my enthusiasm, dedication, and love for advocacy and public policy to this organization. I look forward to increasing awareness for AAUW’s public policy priorities in our communities, specifically issues involving civil rights, education, economic security, and Title IX. Our first event was for National Voter Registration Day on Sept. 26, where we teamed up with Sac State’s Chapter to host a tabling and social media campaign to reach potential voters.

I hope this is just the beginning to a fun, advocacy-centered year! And I look forward to getting to know all of you better
