President's Message

Celebrating Labor Day as AAUW Members

In 1894, following the death of 13 workers during a labor strike, a new Federal holiday, Labor Day, was created by President Grover Cleveland to pay tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. Many women of all different ethnic groups and jobs were instrumental in this “labor movement”.

Our AAUW Mission of Gender Equity and Economic Security includes acting and advocating for women in the workforce today. The percent of women in the labor force is currently the lowest in 32 years, and many women cannot return to the workforce without paid leave and reliable and affordable childcare.

 What can we do?  Become a “Two-Minute Activist.”  CLICK HERE to tell our congressional representatives that this issue is critical for American women, who bear a disproportionate burden of the ongoing health and economic crisis. It is an important first step for AAUW members to be heard by Congress.

We had a good start to the year with the Fourth of July Parade, first New Member Meet-up, Wine and Whine, and program (as part of the Morgan Hill Women’s Week). Thank you to everyone who worked hard for its success, and to everyone who attended.
