We also thank the women and men who placed themselves in harms way throughout the storm to respond to emergencies. Our first responders are selfless individuals who often perform thankless jobs, and members who perform these duties should especially be recognized.
Please be assured that we will continue to stay connected through our shared membership and our commitment to the AAUW mission. Although many directly affected by this natural disaster still do not have communication, we welcome and encourage any updates from you as recovery efforts continue. We are particularly sensitive to the impact on women and children, who may be especially affected by this natural disaster. Your efforts to share our message with fellow members and supporters in your state are appreciated.
Our thoughts remain with you and all AAUW members nationwide who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath.
Linda D. Hallman, CAE
AAUW Executive Director
