Welcome to the Arlington Branch of AAUW of Virginia, Chartered in 1944

December 15 – (Sat.) Arlington Branch AAUW Holiday Luncheon 

Come join us on Saturday, December 15th, from 11:30-1:30 p.m. to Celebrate our 2018 HOLIDAY LUNCHEON .

Our lunch will be prepared by Chef Renee Randolph’s Culinary Arts students at the APS Career Center on 816 South Walter Reed Drive with Holiday Decor and traditional foods.

We are most fortunate this year to have as our featured speaker, Ebonee Avery Washington, a leader of one of the National AAUW’s landmark programs, the Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF).

Ebonee oversees LAF programming while working in close collaboration with LAF- supported plaintiffs and their attorneys. She also makes recommendations for LAF committee and board action on matters including:

— gender discrimination
— workplace equity
— sexual harassment, 
— and, sexual violence.

Ebonee comes to AAUW from AARP Legal Counsel for the Elderly, where she facilitated the self-help office program, advocated for more than 200 seniors annually, and managed the daily operations of a grassroots pro bono service program.

Ebonee received a bachelor’s degree in political science from Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia, and a law degree from Western Michigan University’s Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan. We are delighted to have this dynamic woman as our guest speaker!

Ms. Washington has a wealth of information to share with us. Come and get caught up to date of our National organizations’ efforts to provide financial and legal support for plaintiffs in on-going or resolved cases at the national scale.

Cost is $20. per person.(cash or checks- bring to the luncheon) Please make checks payable to Arlington Branch AAUW.

Members are encouraged to bring a guest.
