We Are Marching Again! This year’s March theme is “Our Power Counts.” The organizers have adjusted the name to include an “x” – to make it clear the March is inclusive of ALL. To assist organizers in estimating attendance, please register for the March here. AAUW San Jose members will meet at the corner of St. James Park at North 3rd Street and East St. John Street at 10:30 am (see map below); bring friends and family to march along with us!
AAUW San Jose will have a table in Action Alley at the end of the route again this year. Please come by and talk to people as they stop by our booth! We also need members to help: to set up the booth signage before the March, monitor the table during the March, as well as be seated at the table and on the walkway as “greeters” for the public after the March. We will have printed information sheets for topics to talk about and handouts to give to the public, designed by our own SJSU student Public Relations Project. Please contact Membership for more information.

August, 26, 2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, where women took their rightful place in the voting booth. The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution establishing the Woman’s Equality 2020 Leadership Council, of which Sharon Bouska from our Branch is a member. The first county-wide task force met November 14, 2018, where over 40 leaders from the community began an introductory session to plan what a centennial celebration would look like. For more about the council and a schedule of upcoming meetings, see the link on the Santa Clara County Office of Women’s Policy website: Woman’s Equality 2020 Leadership Council. You can also check our BONFIRE newsletter for updates from our AAUW San Jose member on the Council, Sharon Bouska.
