The American Association of University Women (AAUW) operates as a non-partisan organization focused on presenting factual information without endorsing specific political candidates. Our primary mission is to advocate for issues that impact women and girls. We fund research on women’s issues to ensure our advocacy is backed by solid data and evidence, addressing key concerns like equal pay and Title IX compliance.

Policy priorities at the national level guide our advocacy efforts, periodically reviewed and updated to reflect evolving societal needs. Similarly, at the state level, we establish our own set of priorities that inform our lobbying activities with the state legislature, ensuring our efforts are well-aligned with both national objectives and state-specific needs.
