Danville-Alamo-Walnut Creek AAUW

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, and Great Decisions. Please explore our website and contact us if you would like to learn more.
