The California Online Branch is a branch of the American Association of University Women. As with all AAUW branches, we are dedicated to promoting AAUW’s mission: AAUW advances gender equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy.

The current AAUW CA Public Policy Priorities are at: http://www.aauw-ca.org/proposed-aauw-ca-public-policy-action-priorities-2019-2021.  (Although the post implies that these priorities are only proposed, they were voted on and adopted in April 2019.)

Although we are a California branch of AAUW, a number of our members are from other states as well. The beauty of an online environment is the absence of geographical barriers in defining membership.

So we welcome anyone with an associate, equivalent or higher degree (minimum membership requirement of AAUW) who is interested in discussing AAUW policy issues, participating in action projects to further AAUW’s mission goals, and getting to know a diverse group of people from across the state and country to join our branch.

Branch members (and friends!) may also find us on Facebook.
