Danville-Alamo-Walnut Creek AAUW

Welcome to Danville Alamo Walnut Creek Branch of the American Association of University Women. AAUW membership is a great way to meet like-minded women through activities that focus on equity for women.

We are tenacious and trailblazing — advocating for women and girls since 1881 and into the future!

Our mission is to advance gender equity for women and girls though research, education and advocacy.  Our monthly events from September to June support our mission with a mix of educational programs, fundraising events, and social activities and are supplemented with smaller activity-based Interest Group meetings.

AAUW condemns racism and its associated discrimination. Prejudice and inequality – including economic equality – cannot be passively ignored. AAUW has been a leading voice in America in the fight for equity for women and girls, and we especially recognize the additional challenges facing Black women and girls. Click here for updates.

Branch Update – August 2020

With a wonderfully successful AAUW Garden Walk 2020 behind us, we can all feel proud that we met the challenge of fundraising in the time of COVID. By adapting our plans to meet health guidelines, we were able to fully fund our Local Scholarships for 2021 while also providing a much-needed way for the attendees to get out in nature. Kudos, congratulations and our heartfelt thanks to our Garden Walk Team, led by Kathy Harkins and supported by you, our branch members for this resounding success!

Meanwhile, we are all learning how to apply social distancing that allows us to continue with the meaningful activities in our lives. For our branch, this means we will plan to carry on with our monthly activities while adapting the format to accommodate current health guidelines.
