Learn New Things! Meet New Friends! Have Fun!
Just over 110 years ago a small group of women graduates in Ann Arbor gathered together to form the Ann Arbor Branch of the Association of Collegiate Alumni – the forerunner of AAUW. Today we are a vibrant, active group of some 300 intellectually curious women, devoted to improving the lives of women and girls through education. Along the way we manage to improve our own lives – and have a lot of fun. We welcome new members.
The AAUW Ann Arbor Branch Offers
- A group of educated women with diverse backgrounds and experiences
- Informative and stimulating monthly programs
- More than 35 small interest groups covering a wide range of topics and activities
- A used book sale that raises money for national fellowships, local scholarships, and awards to graduating high school seniors
- Community outreach activities like Brains Rule! and Let’s Read Math
- Membership in national and state AAUW organizations

Michigan ACLU’s Current Civil Rights Initiatives
Kary L. Moss has served as the Executive Director of the ACLU of Michigan since 1998. She has a Masters in International Affairs from Columbia University and a JD from CUNY Law School at Queen’s College. She was inducted into the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame in 2011. In her talk she will describe how the ACLU is addressing the rights of children the poor, women, and the LGBT and immigrant communities, along with voting rights, access to reproductive health care and, most recently, access to a high quality education.

Successful Book Sale News
Members of the Ann Arbor branch work hard virtually all year round to make our annual Used Book Sale a success, and through their efforts we raise thousands of dollars for scholarships for women. Read the final report of the 2014 sale or check out Polly Pan’s AAUW Funds Report for 2014 to learn exactly how we disburse all that money.
