AAUW in the News

Calling all AAUW Artists:

It’s that time of year again! AAUW’s 12th annual art contest opens January 6, and your work could be among the winning entries.

To enter, submit your photography or a digital photo of your painting, drawing, sculpture, collage or other form of art through the AAUW website. All entries are accepted, but we encourage you to look through your portfolio for works that speak to AAUW’s mission.

AAUW members will select their favorite entries via ranked-choice voting. Winning entries will be featured on a collection of notecards sent to members in the spring. The back of the cards will include the winning artist’s biography, a fact about AAUW and a highlight of their local branch affiliation when applicable.

This year’s winners could include someone from your branch or state, so spread the word through your member communications!

For more information on submitting artwork or to see last year’s art gallery, please visit the AAUW Art Contest page .

We hope to see your work in this year’s contest!


Tremayne A. Parquet,
Deputy Director of Advancement & Partnerships

Fortune Magazine article featuring AAUW CIO Kim Churches

The following is a statement from AAUW CEO Kimberly Churches

AAUW joins the country in mourning the losses of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless other people of color who have been unjustly killed across our nation. Our country needs healing. But healing will only come with justice. As an organization we condemn racism.

Systemic racism is firmly rooted in the U.S. and today’s injustices mirror our shameful history — from police brutality to the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on communities of color. There can be no justice or equality when Black and Brown communities are seen as less deserving of basic human and civil rights.

On behalf of our 170,000 members and supporters, we commit to fighting for justice, long-term and lasting change, and we stand in solidarity against racism. We also acknowledge that as an organization we have our own work to do.

And, as a member of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, we will work to advance the policies and systemic changes identified in the New Era of Public Safety: A Guide to Fair, Safe, and Effective Community Policing and Vision for Justice platform.

AAUW Annual Art Contest

Every year AAUW members cast their vote on the final candidates to be featured in the spring collection of note cards. This year, AAUW gave special preference to submissions that reflect our mission and values.
