Welcome to the Danville Alamo Walnut Creek Branch of the American Association of University Women. Advocating for equal rights, gender equity and education for women and girls since 1881, we are tenacious and trailblazing!
We sponsor and fundraise for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education through TechTrek and Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) for local girls and each year our branch awards scholarships to local women to help them complete academic degrees and graduate programs.
Besides sharing a love for community service around women’s equity and education, we enjoy a rich social event calendar as well as a broad selection of Interest Groups – Books, Movies, Bridge, Gourmet, Art and Garden, Mah Jongg, and Great Decisions. Please explore our website and contact us if you would like to learn more.
Don’t miss our March Third Thursday member meeting! In addition to the usual social time, we will feature an important talk titled Educational Equity: Student Wellness Initiatives – A Whole Child Approach to Education.

You’re invited to the online Gov Trek finale!
Saturday, March 25, 10:00 am to 12:30 pm
California AAUW launched Gov Trek on January 28. This striking new initiative gives junior and senior high school girls a glimpse of careers in public service and elected office. With five virtual sessions through mid-March, the program features live presentations from an impressive array of women leaders holding key local, state, and federal government positions. In addition, the students are grouped into small teams which will prepare and present a campaign simulation for a hypothetical candidate. The simulation deliverables include a candidate stump speech, voter outreach plan, and campaign flyer and ad, all to be captured in a video designed and produced by the team.
Branch members are warmly invited to attend the online grand finale, which will include the eight student team presentations, live judging, and awards. This promises to be a terrific event!
