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.

Somerset Hills AAUW Branch Program – September 2017

BRANCH MEETINGTuesday, Sept 12, 2017, 630 P.M. at Bernards Township Library, Basking Ridge

Program: The Supreme Court in a Democratic System, presented by Milton Heumann, Distinguished Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University. Explore how a SUPREME Court can be reconciled with a democratic political system.  Should the Court overturn legislation or go against majority view? If so, when should it do so? Can it do it even if it should? What is the relationship of the court to the country’s democratic system? This is sure to be a thought provoking evening.

Come welcome the new season with old friends, welcome new members and guests, and get on board for all the interesting opportunities AAUW offers.
