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 Tech Trek 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.

At the June branch board meeting, we adopted the following statement regarding direction to people attending branch functions. While we understand that people want to participate in person at our events, we also want to foster consideration for all members in creating a safe environment for everyone. Please consider this direction when you plan to attend a branch meeting.
If you are feeling ill in any way, or have been in close contact with someone known to have tested positive for COVID in the last 10 days, please do not attend any meeting!
Remember that COVID exposure remains a serious issue and that we need to be constantly vigilant. If you plan to attend a branch event, please stay home if you feel ill or if you have been exposed to COVID or any other significant communicable disease. We encourage you to be considerate of everyone attending a function, some of whom might be more susceptible than others. If you have any doubts, test, wear a mask, and err on the side of caution.
While there are inherent risks in attending an in-person event, with your help we will do our best to keep everyone safe at our meetings.
The annual brunch was an enjoyable morning for almost 80 attendees. The program included branch business, information about plans for the coming year, and an interesting exchange between keynote speakers Cindy Silva, mayor of Walnut Creek, and Samantha Caygill, Walnut Creek Transportation Commissioner.
