Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Training
Wednesday, June 19
7 pm
AAUW San Jose Headquarters
1165 Minnesota Avenue, San Jose

Ever wonder what LGBTQQI means? Or what is intersex? Why is gender identity important? Ellyn Bloomfeld will lead us in a training to review the various terminology we hear every day. There will be a Q&A after, so please come with your questions. This will be a welcome arena to get those answers you’ve always wanted. Please contact Elissa Stankiewicz for more information.


Women’s Suffrage Centennial Celebration

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.
