Public Policy

AAUW CA School Board Project

AAUW CA has launched a School Board Project to combat the wave across the country that seeks “to withhold certain historical information from students and to preclude student access and exposure to educational materials and/or campus events concerning a number of historically marginalized groups, including persons of color and people in LGBTQ+ communities.  These efforts include financial and other forms of support for candidates for school board positions who support these policies and who would then be in a position to see them come to fruition.”

In support of this state project, an AAUW MH committee has been established to attend and monitor meetings of the Morgan Hill Unified School District. Meetings are generally the first and third Tuesdays of each month at district office, 15600 Concord Circle. A sign-up sheet is in the AAUW shared Google folder; MHUSD Board Meetings – Google Sheets
