Around the State

Fergus Falls Branch

The Fergus Falls AAUW branch hosted their Holiday Tour of Homes fundraiser on November 5th, 2022. Six Fergus Falls homeowners opened their beautifully decorated homes for the public to experience holiday décor ahead of the season.

Branch members participated in the event by volunteering, promoting, purchasing tickets, coordinating, baking, and giving financial support. We sold 575 tickets which raised more than $12,000 towards scholarships for women.

AAUW of Minnesota Stands Against Racism

AAUW MN mourns the murders of George Floyd, Philando Castile, Breonna Taylor, and far too many others. Police and general violence, and anti-black racism are at emergency status. Racist violence is a part of our country’s history and society, and it must stop.

Since its inception, AAUW has advocated equity for women and girls. AAUW has a history of advocacy that moved our country to change many of its practices. Our AAUW advocacy efforts evolved to represent a firm belief in equity for all. But more work is needed.

Minnesota has experienced first-hand the severity of inequality and inequity. Recent events demonstrate the need to bring this long journey of systemic racism and inequity to an end.

This journey will require everyone to listen to all people, to reshape power, to redefine systems, to probe deep-set biases, and to question many aspects of our daily lives. To that end, AAUW MN affirms its advocacy to fight racism and obtain equity and inclusion for all.
