Lobby Corps

The Front Lines of Public Policy Whether fighting for gender equity in education, championing moderate jurists for federal courts, or supporting measures to improve economic security, AAUW Action Fund’s Capitol Hill Lobby Corps is on the scene.
Once a week, volunteer members and college student interns give AAUW Action Fund a voice and a face on Capitol Hill. Since its formation in 1972, the Lobby Corps has made tens of thousands of visits to congressional offices, making AAUW a familiar and respected name among members of Congress and their staffs. Because of this corps, working hand in hand with staff, AAUW has had a significant political impact on legislation concerning issues such as
education
civil rights
reproductive rights
economic security

Population(s) Served

Critical issues — educational equity, retirement security, a fair and balanced judiciary, civil rights, workplace fairness, reproductive rights, healthcare reform, and equal pay — are at stake each time Americans go to the ballot box.
AAUW and the AAUW Action Fund encourage women voters to get involved in the political process and shows the impact congressional action has on their lives and the lives of the people they love.
Because it is vital that women go to the polls knowing where the candidates stand on issues such as education, retirement security, a fair and balanced judiciary, and pay equity, the AAUW Action Fund voter guides provide nonpartisan information about candidate positions on priority issues.
The AAUW Action Fund Congressional Voting Record presents the positions of senators and representatives on issues that are key to the mission and priorities of both AAUW and the Action Fund.
Get involved with our voter education and turnout efforts! For more information on how you can register to vote, get informed and track the issues, involve others in voter education efforts, and use AAUW’s Woman-to-Woman Voter Turnout manual to get out the vote, please visit AAUW’s Voter Education Campaign webpage.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Since 1881, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) has been the nation's leading voice promoting education and equity for women and girls. The AAUW Action Fund advances equity for women and girls through member activism and voter mobilization.



The AAUW Action Fund was established July 1, 2009, following a strategic restructuring of AAUW, the AAUW Educational Foundation, and the AAUW Leadership and Training Institute. The AAUW Action Fund supports AAUW's continuing goal of breaking through barriers for women and girls, and it does so through member activism and voter mobilization.
