AAUW NJ members Karen Brown, president; Jacqueline McGuinness, secretary; and Nancy Butler, past president, met with Rosie Driscoll, Senator Menendez’s Outreach Specialist for women’s issues, to discuss AAUW’s priorities and exchange ideas for supporting each other in our work towards equity for all.
