impacting equity for women and girls. Become a Two-Minute Activist at

News from National and State AAUW
The AAUW Colorado Fall Leadership Conference is now history…but you can still eavesdrop on some of its powerful presentations, ranging from guest speaker Drew Houston, Executive Director of Citizen’s Project, speaking on Promoting Positive Togetherness, to a series of practical discussions about effective tools and techniques being deployed by various Colorado AAUW branches. https://www.youtube.com/user/aauwcolorado/videos. While you’re there, you may want to tune in to our Colorado Springs branch entry, a discussion of Interest Groups as an Engine of Growth presented by our own Cindi Zenkert-Strange. Vive la interest groups!
The AAUW Loveland Branch is sponsoring A Virtual Conversation with Authors as a fundraiser for their scholarship fund. (Sound familiar?) Two Colorado authors will be joining them from 9-10:30 on Saturday October 9th, Adrian Miller, author of Black Smoke: African Americans and the United States of Barbecue, and Nanci Rathburn, author of the Angela Boneparte crime thrillers. Send your check for $20 to Beth Franklin, 435 Harrison Ave., Loveland 80537 and she will send you the Zoom link.
