The American Association of University Women – AAUW – invites you to join us on Saturday, February 20, 2021 for a program presented by Alicia Funk on ZOOM at 10:00 am. In January of 2020 Alicia and her daughter traveled to India for a trip organized by WomenServe, an organization that supports the education of women and girls in Rajasthan, India. Alicia’s presentation will provide a glimpse into the lives of women and girls there and will show how simple solutions have made a lasting difference.
Alicia Funk is the local co-author of Living Wild – Gardening, Cooking and Healing with Native Plants of California, the editor of six other books on plants and founder of The Living Wild Project. She and her daughter Annabella visited several villages and camps outside of Rajasthan, India to view the work of WomenServe. A video that Annabella filmed there later received an award at the ConnectHer film festival.
The meeting is open to the public and will begin at 10 a.m. on Feb. 20, with attendees asked to log in to ZOOM between 9:30 and 9:55 a.m. For the link to the ZOOM meeting, go to AAUW Nevada County at: https://nevadacounty-ca.aauw.net/ AAUW membership is open to individuals with an associate, baccalaureate, or higher degree from a qualified educational institution.
