Branch Membership in AAUW

 Please join us!

The Reston-Herndon Area Branch, founded in 1969, is a vibrant group of women and men balancing leadership of our mission to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research with activities that are educational, engaging and fun. In addition to national opportunities offered to all AAUW members, branch members enjoy networking at the local level, serving in local and state leadership roles, sponsoring community action projects, and lobbying on AAUW priority issues. If you enjoy this level of activism and engagement, then branch membership is the right choice for you!

We meet monthly and participate in programs related to our mission of supporting girls and women on issues ranging from pay equity to gender equality to Title IX protections, as well as advocacy on women’s health and educational concerns.

We also enjoy many opportunities to participate in branch-sponsored activities, social events and cultural outings in Northern Virginia and the DC metropolitan area.
