June – August 2020

AAUW  of Greater Richmond states:
     We, the members of GRAAUW, stand in solidarity with the protesters who want social, economic and racial justice.

As a result, women hold nearly two-thirds of the outstanding student debt in the United States — almost $900 billion as of mid-2018. Read More.
