Public Policy in AAUW Carlisle Branch

Carlisle Branch works locally to advance the AAUW member-endorsed Public Policy Priorities  addressing policies that break through educational and economic barriers for women.  Specific areas of work are GOTV, Title IX, and Equal Pay.  We collaborate with other organizations in the community, including the League of Women Voters, YWCA Carlisle, MomsRising, Fair Districts PA, and Dickinson College.
