October 2018 Meeting

A Reminder To Vote on November 6

Saturday October 6, 2018, Golden Sails Inn

Do You Want to Get a Better Understanding of the Ballot Measures
Before You Vote in November?

Our October guest speaker, Nancy Mahr, is well-qualified to share with the branch her knowledge of the 11 propositions on the upcoming ballot. Nancy is member of the AAUW Palos Verdes Peninsula Branch and is a California AAUW Director and Public Policy Co-Chair.

You may have received emails containing Nancy’s summaries of bills proposed in CA over the last year. For example, in May of 2018, Nancy sent out a statewide advocacy email sharing AAUW’s endorsement of SB1284, which would require large employers to “identify pay inequality through data collection”. The data would be used to “compile and report aggregate pay data based on gender, race and ethnicity”. Employers would be empowered “spot and correct pay imbalances internally”, which is “good for women, families and the economy”. As of August 16, 2019, SB1284 was in committee and under submission.

Her non-partisan overview of the state initiatives will provide you with a better understanding of how they came about, who proposed them, the most up to date pros and cons. Learn how AAUW decided whether to remain “neutral”, “support”, or take “no position” on each. Please join us to get answers to your questions from the AAUW perspective. We will meet again at the Best Western Golden Sails hotel banquet room and enjoy another delicious lunch. Members and guests are welcome to attend.
