Welcome to the Portsmouth, VA Branch of AAUW!

Several members and friends of the Portsmouth Branch AAUW attended the H.E.R. Shelter SMART Women Luncheon today. We are proud to support the work of the H.E.R. Shelter which provides shelter and support resources to women and children who are victims of domestic violence.

Portsmouth Branch AAUW members filled Baby’s Book Bags for the Portsmouth Reads program at their September 16, 2019 branch meeting.  Portsmouth Reads distributes these bags to new mothers in Portsmouth to provide information on resources available in the community and parenting guidelines on things such as safe sleep and car seat safety.  Each bag also includes a new board book for each baby.
