Welcome to the Somerset Hills Branch of AAUW

AAUW is the oldest women’s organization in the USA. Our mission is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research. We have general meetings and various interest groups. Our major fundraiser is our annual used book sale.

All members, even new ones, are encouraged to participate as board members, group chairs, convention attendees, and book sale workers, in order to get the most out of the AAUW experience.

Halftime Challenge

HALFTIME CHALLENGE The NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking (of which AAUW NJ is a member, and our own Ginny Lyttle is our representative) wants you to know how you can help fight human trafficking, especially the increase in sex trafficking that’s associated with events like the Super Bowl. HalfTimeChallenge is a social media* campaign to spread the message about abolishing modern day slavery by creating a “Twitter storm” using the hashtags #HTChallenge and #HalftimeChallenge. For more information go to: www.HTChallenge.net. Facebook works too – see partner Justice Network:  https://www.facebook.com/JusticeNetwork.* Don’t use social media? You can still help – just pass this information on to family and friends who do – give them the opportunity to join the fight!

A VENTURE TO EXOTIC MOROCCO – Casbahs and Camels

Journey to exotic Morocco through pictures and words with Ginny Lyttle and Arlene Inglis, two of our adventurous members. Learn about the history from the Phoenicians to today. Marvel at the mosaics in the Roman ruins, walk through labyrinthine medinas, visit the souks and climb the Atlas Mountains. Witness a camel ride and camping in the mighty Sahara. Join us for this visit to the land with a rich mix of cultures and traditions.

The presenters: Ginny Lyttle is a long time member of AAUW, world traveler and retired educator who likes to take photographs. She currently resides in Morris Plains. Arlene Inglis is a history buff and world traveler. She is interested in learning about other cultures.  She currently lives in Morris Plains.

The presentation is on Tuesday, February 9, at the Bernards Township Library. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 pm followed by a short business meeting. The program will begin at 7 pm.
