Tuesday, November 10, 2020 at 6:30 pm: Harrisburg: City Resurgent? Brad Jones, President and CEO of the nonprofit economic development firm Harristown Enterprises, will discuss his organization’s key role in spearheading the reestablishment  of Harrisburg as a thriving economic and cultural center. The process was initiated in 1974, when Harrisburg appeared rundown and still suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Agnes. What is the growth strategy for today? What does the future hold for Harrisburg?

This program will be presented on Zoom, thanks to Dauphin County Library System’s zoom room. To obtain the link contact:

No rally for 2020 – since neither PA House nor Senate were in session on March 31, AAUW did not plan a rally at the State Capitol this year. Instead, they are encouraging members to visit their legislators in their home offices.

On Monday, APRIL 8, 2019 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 at the Pennsylvania State Capitol Rotunda, AAUW Harrisburg joined members and friends of the American Association of University Women-PA, Business and Professional Women-Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Commission for Women, Women’s Law Project, Moms Rising and state legislators to rally in Harrisburg for a long overdue update to our state equal pay law.
