Elect Her: Campus Women Win
Running Start, in collaboration with AAUW, recently held an Elect Her: Campus Women Win workshop at The University Minnesota. Students from The University of Minnesota and St. Cloud State University participated in this training program that encourages college women to run for student government on their colleges or university campuses. Research has shown that women who run for student body elections in college are more likely to run for office as adults. Thanks go to the University of Minnesota Women’s Center for hosting this event for a second year!that encourages college women to run for student government on their college or university campuses.

Minnesota Women’s Consortium “Celebration 34”
AAUW Minnesota members from Ely, Minneapolis, Red Wing, and St. Paul Branches, along with David Kirkwood, AAUW Board Director, were in St. Paul for the Minnesota Women’s Consortium “Celebration 34”. The Celebration highlights the work of MWC to achieve equity and justice for women and their families. Members listened to the inspiring words of Woman of the Year, shared by Monica Meyer, OutFront MN and Ann Kaner-Roth, Project 515. The Minnesota Human Trafficking Task Force was honored as Organization of the Year for their continued work to address this important issue in Minnesota. Sarah Stoesz, President & CEO of Planned Parenthood MN, ND, SD was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award and reminded us that our work is not done in combating the challenges to our rights as women.
