The Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF) works to challenge sex discrimination in higher education and the workplace. Sex discrimination today takes a variety of forms: unfair pay, pregnancy discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, and violations of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 can affect both women and men. LAF addresses these barriers by informing people of their rights and using the legal system to seek justice and change.  At the local level, AAUW branches provide programs to raise awareness of sexual harassment and sexual assault on campus, equal pay, salary negotiation and Title IX. 

The Poughkeepsie Branch makes an annual contribution to AAUW's Legal Advocacy Fund, which is part of the AAUW national organization. On a national level, LAF provides case support, education about your rights on campus or in the workplace, and provides grants for those branches who wish to offer programs on these subjects.

AAUW volunteers for the Highland Rotary at the Ribfest have raised money for LAF (Legal Advocacy Fund) for past 13 years.

Ask friends and family if they would like to help. Their volunteer hours will count. The more hours volunteered means more money for the defense of women's rights. The Highland Rotary offers us this chance to volunteer our time to support AAUW Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF)

 

Thanks to all the AAUW members for their continuing support of this event.

Thanks to the Highland Rotary Club for sponsoring this event for 13 years!
