Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Today, using the support AAUW gives the volunteers of the Capital Hill Lobby Corps, I was in the office of a US senator. I had attended a briefing prepared by a member of the organization, and was comfortable in my role advocating for girls' athletic opportunities. The legislative chief came out, and I gave him my polite, prepared heartfelt sentence. We talked more, he told me of his neighbor's involvement in the Olympics, and I think I might have gotten the support of this office. I was there for the girls who haven't yet been disappointed. This organization gives me the tools, as a volunteer, to try to make the future better.
