About our Branch

The North Shore Branch offers a variety of study groups and programs.  We also fundraise for AAUW National funds and support efforts to fulfill our mission to advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy.  Our vision is “Equity for All.”

Our study groups include Day and Evening Literature, Music, Travel, Great Decisions (based on information from the Foreign Policy Association), and Perspectives, which covers a variety of topics.

NOSH (North Shore) Political Action Group studies and discusses current issues.  We have met with federal and state elected officials and conducted a voter registration campaign at several local libraries, as well as running a campaign to inform people of the importance of filling out the census forms.

Periodic Branch Meetings include speakers and information related to AAUW national and AAUW NY state and branch issues.

The Branch usually has a New Year’s luncheon for a social gathering and to raise money for AAUW funds.  We also sponsor a Fellowship Luncheon, to which we invite local women students who have been awarded fellowships for higher education from AAUW National.  The fellows inform us of their past and current studies and their goals and plans for the future.

Currently all our programming is on Zoom.  We invite you to join us.  Please check out the Zoom link on the navigation bar above to find out how we use Zoom for our meetings and to arrange for help if you are new to Zoom or just want to know more about how it works.
