Branch members at the SRVUSD board meeting

(August 15, 2023) Fifteen DAW AAUW members attended the San Ramon Valley Unified School District’s first 2023-2024 school-year Board meeting August 15th. Our branch’s attendance was sparked by the CA AAUW Public Policy School Board Project, launched in July to pull through one of our Public Policy Priorities: “Equal Access to Quality Public Education for All Students”. The School Board Project is developing and disseminating materials to help branches respond to membership concerns about local instances of the nationwide movement to ban books and censor curricula in public education.
