AAUW
August 17, 2012

The AAUW has been the most amazing organization over the past year of my life and continues to amaze me. My involvement and awareness with the AAUW grew in March 2012 when the AAUW used Legal Advocacy Funds to sponsor a press conference for military rape survivors taking action at the National Press Club. Ms. Linda Hallman, CEO of the AAUW gave an incredibly though-provoking speech and encouraged survivors of military rape to continue to advocate and spark true societal and institutional reform within the Department of Defense and United States. Within minutes of the press conference ending, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, BBC, Reuters and the Associated Press all covered extensive stories on-topic and involved, "The Invisible War" multi-award winning documentary. Media inquiries continue to this day as a result of what the AAUW funded, yet also had the foresight to do: advocate for equality and action. I had the most sincere pleasure of attending the Florida State Convention of the AAUW and giving a speech representing how truly touched and grateful I was for their actions. The AAUW raises funds and campaigns for other women whom they may not ever meet. They raise funds, increase awareness and ask for equality on the premise and principle that it is the right thing to do and therefore a call to action is necessary. I have since met my local branch and joined the organization- I firmly believe that all eligible women should. Yesterday, the AAUW announced something even more bold, yet powerful. They will start an "Invisible War Campaign" at the branch level. The influence that this campaign will have over local communities, veterans and society will be monumental. The AAUW has now helped raise the bar even higher for men and women alike regarding ending the epidemic of injustice, sexual trauma and apathy within the military. Now is certainly the time to join this all-encompassing organization. I cannot say enough how truly grateful I am for this life-changing organization.
