American Association of University Women – Fremont

The AAUW Fremont Branch invites you to JOIN NOW, for many moments of excitement and fun while achieving our mission objectives.




Welcome to AAUW’s branch in Fremont, Newark and Union City. For the 2017–2018 year, we continue our theme of Working Together – Reaching New Heights to press forward the AAUW mission to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.

Our new program this year is a lecture series on diverse topics such as sanctuary cities, immigration and fundraising. We will continue to build on successful programs such as our STEM Education programs, including Tech Trek and Mother/Daughter STEM Discovery Day, One Book One Community Read, and Women’s History, to name a few. Our programs have impacted lives in our community, and we can make a bigger impact with T.E.A.M. work: Together Everyone Achieves More. Where our mission coincides with that of other organizations, we welcome the opportunity to form partnerships.

Come check us out! Getting to know others who share the same mission enriches our lives and grows our network. In addition to big group meetings, there are smaller groups that meet for book discussion. Whatever the group size, we have fun, which is essential to our success.

Come join us as we support women and girls in our community.
