October 10 Funds Tea for One Fundraiser By Charmen Goehring
This year, the annual Funds luncheons will be held online via Zoom on October 10 and October 24. The registration links are on the state website at www.aauw-ca.org.
Normally, the Funds luncheon costs $45 and a drive to the Bay Area. This year, the branch Funds committee is offering to deliver Tea for One to your home in time for the presentation on October 10! For a $25 minimum donation to the Greatest Needs Fund, we will bring homemade scones and jam with a tea bag or two to your home on the morning of October 10. Enjoy your treats while listening to our Fellows during the 1pm event on Zoom- you will also be helping our branch reach 5 Star Status!!
You can mail a check into our CFO Liz Jordan with Tea for One/Greatest Needs in the memo line or make your donation online at aauw.org and email Charmen (email@example.com) to let her know you have made the donation! The sooner you donate, the easier our planning will be. The last day to donate and still have an on-time delivery is October 8!! Thank you for supporting AAUW Funds, especially the Greatest Needs!!
Living Our Mission of Equity By Charmen Goehring
2020 has certainly been an interesting year- between a pandemic, increased racial tensions and
now mail in ballot drama, it’s been a year of stepping back and reevaluating how we address issues in our nation. The AAUW Sacramento branch board has been talking about diversity and equity in the branch and AAUW as an organization. We invite you to join us in a monthly equity conversation looking at our own biases and what actions we can take to attract diversity to our branch and become better people in the process. We will be reading the book, So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo and discussing what we have read along with exploring other issues related to race and equity. We will meet the second Wednesday of each month from 7pm-8pm on Zoom (except for October when we will meet on the third Wednesday).
The Zoom meeting code is 737 420 3780 or you can join using this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/7374203780
We will discuss the chapters 3, 4, and 5 on October 21 at 7pm. If you have questions and to RSVP, please email Charmen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
