Public Policy

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.

AAUW is a non-partisan organization, focused on priority issues around gender equality in education, economic security, and leadership. Presenting issues in a non-partisan manner, especially to a very partisan elected official, has its challenges.  Yet, we must engage with elected officials to move forward the issues important to use.  Equal Pay legislation will not get passed without all of us having multiple conversations with legislators.
