AAUW is a wonderful organization

The Visitors Guide, published by the News-Sentinel, provides an excellent source of local information for Lodi residents as well as visitors.

However, I was surprised to note the omission of the Lodi Branch of the American Association of University Women in the list of nonprofit organizations as well as other women's organizations in Lodi.

The Lodi Branch of AAUW, founded in 1959, has nearly one hundred Lodi-area members who promote advancement in equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, research and philanthropy, both locally and nationally.

Locally, the Lodi Branch sends middle school girls to "Tech Trek," a week-long science and mathematics program held at CSU Fullerton, and then mentors the girls through high school. The groups gives scholarships to local high school seniors each year. Members support AVID college prep classes in Lodi schools. Twenty years ago, three members received an AAUW start-up grant that was used to found the Lodi Women's Center, which is still a local priority. Nationally, AAUW continues its long history of equity for women and girls.

The members of the Lodi Branch of AAUW sincerely hope that the omission of the group can be corrected in the next edition of the Visitors Guide and that the listing of AAUW and the other women's nonprofit organizations can be included as well.
