Thank you for such a strong message of concern and support for Casa de Esperanza.

AAUW Marysville-Yuba City is the local branch of the American Association of University Women, whose mission is to promote gender equality for women and girls through advocacy, education and research. We recognize the vital work that Casa does for the women and children of our community as it “provides protection and education for victims of domestic violence, violence, sexual assault, and child abuse.”

Among our activities at the local, state, national, and international levels we advocate to create and support laws and programs that support women’s safety and economic security. Casa does both, and our community owes our women and children the help they need to escape violence, recover from trauma, and learn to live strong and independent lives.

As a member of AAUW and a community member, I plan to be one of the shouters in support of Casa. I volunteer to be a member of a committee to help Sutter County get the facility rebuilt and to promote the work that Casa does. Count me in. Count AAUW Marysville-Yuba City in.
